Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership enables academic and industry collaboration that enhances teacher-student-practitioner interactions and promotes technology transfer between Princeton University and its corporate partners to address global energy needs and environmental concerns.

Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership is an initiative of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, which is a part of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, in strong partnership with the Princeton Environmental Institute, the School of Architecture, and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. Our associated centers are listed below.

Princeton University has longstanding Core Strengths that provide gateways to advances in many areas of energy and the environment. For example, Princeton’s historic leadership in mathematics, physics, and computer science has led to broad strengths in computational science, engineering, and modeling, which in turn drives the University’s major contributions to fields from combustion science to climate modeling. Similarly, Princeton’s world-class research in materials science and engineering enables advances in fields from solar energy conversion to energy storage and nuclear fusion. At Princeton, collaborations take place seamlessly across porous departmental boundaries, from science and technology to the arts, humanities, and social sciences. These connections foster a vibrant environment of creativity and leadership. In addition, research is thoroughly integrated with teaching, which prepares students to move quickly into leadership roles.

Goals of Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership

Discover, develop, and transfer to industry practical and transformative tools to enable the generation of new, innovative technologies to address global energy and environmental challenges.

Provide scientific and economic policy analyses to enable rapid and large-scale adoption of energy and environmental solutions.

Create a think tank for corporate leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs to inform global energy and environmental decisions.

Provide preferential access to expertise in the science, engineering, and policy aspects of energy and the environment.

Strengthen education in energy and environmental fields through close teacher-student-practitioner interactions.
