Next Steps for Prospective Members

Next Steps

Contact Site Director, Dr. Aaron Wemhoff ( for further details about the Center and to discuss your areas of interest.

If your company’s interests are consistent with the mission and goals of the Center, you will be invited to attend the next biannual ES2 IAB meeting (held at the conclusion of Q2 and Q4) where you can meet the IAB members, university site directors and researchers. You will be asked to sign a confidential non-disclosure agreement prior to the meeting.

Formal membership requires that you sign a membership agreement with Villanova University (acting on behalf of the ES2), detailing the terms and conditions of membership. All companies sign a common agreement—the agreement may not be customized.

Your company can begin active participation in the Center immediately upon signing the membership agreement.

The annual membership fee is $50,000 and entitles you as a member to full privileges including a nonexclusive royalty-free license to ES2-funded university inventions and a role in the selection of research projects.
