1. JRI OVERVIEW
Over the last 20 years, working with ICE international researchers (ICEI), JRI had developed a number of novel concepts and technologies on Smart, Lean, Integrated, Concurrent Engineering (SLICE) subjects, and collaborative product development fields. JRI would like to partner with International students and researchers. Working together, aim of JRI program is to extend those technologies and carry out new research on SLICE areas.
ICE International (ICEI)-- Joint Research initiatives (JRI) was launched in 1996. Today, it is more difficult for many International Engineering students & researchers to travel to United States for study and/or for conducting collaborative research. Difficulties arise due to lack of opportunity, time, funds, , scheduling conflicts, US visa/ work-permit restrictions, excessive cost of travel, lodging and boarding, geographic separation, language issues, or other work-related reasons. Many such foreign students would like to do both: conduct collaborative research with foreign institutions, and at the same time continue working. They wish to remain employed in the homeland of their birth while doing study/research.
JRI was founded with International students’ time & travel limitations and associated costs in mind.
2. JRI GUIDING PRINCIPLES
It is expected that after the completion of the JRI sponsored research, International students and ICEI Instructors will write a joint paper (technical, research, and/or applications) detailing the novel outcome of the SLICE research and its findings. The ICEI instructors will also help the international students in getting their research papers published in a reputed Journal of their likings so that international students get the appropriate credit for the work performed. Any Intellectual properties (IPs) developed jointly on this JRI program belongs to both parties.
3. JRI ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
This section describes roles and responsibilities of the both participating organizations and delivering organizations and/or their surrogates (if any). Surrogates may be appointed by the participating organizations performing research, development, and demonstration projects as a part of this contract. Agreement for full Cost sustainability and time commitments need to be agreed amongst the parties prior to execution of the contractual arrangements.
3.1 ICE INTERNATIONAL (ICEI) RESPONSIBILITIES
ICEI and its associates represent the delivering organization. The delivering Organizations will provide know-how, technology and tools in supporting the SLICE research.
On behalf of the delivering organization, there will be ICEI “instructors”, whose primary purpose would be to identify and define the needs & scope for SLICE research, help guide international students, and pave the roadmap for the completion of the chosen research, paper or thesis.
3.2 INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS AND/OR RECEIVING ORGANIZATION RESPONSIBILITIES
The Receiving Organizations is the sponsoring organization, who sponsors, selects or appoints the international students for the JRI program. It is assumed that those selected (students) will be fully supported financially by the sponsoring institutions or his surrogates.
4. JRI SUCCESS FACTORS
Publication of research into a reputed Journal will be the ultimate measure of the success and well deserved recognitions for the International students participating on JRI programs.
5. JRI BENEFITS
This JRI program provides enormous benefits to both international students, and their sponsoring organization participating on the JRI research programs.
One of the key benefit/goal of JRI is advancement & utilization of SLICE tools & technology (T&T) by collaborating with International students.
