CRA Industry Committee

Mission: To convene industry partners on computing research topics of mutual interest and connect them with CRA’s academic and government constituents for mutual benefit and improved societal outcomes.

The CRA-I standing committee was created in the fall of 2020 with the goal of reaching out to industry partners involved in computing research and giving them new opportunities to convene and connect on topics of mutual interest. As a part of the CRA, CRA-I also facilitates the interaction between industry partners and other organizations deeply involved in computing research, including academic institutions and government agencies.

The CRA-I committee recognizes the diversity of companies that participate in the computing research ecosystem and seeks to enable those companies, big and small, to get the greatest benefit from sharing their experiences with each other. Furthermore, CRA-I recognizes that many companies not traditionally contributing or benefitting from computing research are now actively engaging with the community. The committee seeks to help such companies and others contribute and participate in the computing research community by facilitating open discussions among all parties (industry, academia, and government) on important trends. These conversations influence future directions of these trends and CRA-I develops them into best practices, white papers, and/or reports to enhance the computing research ecosystem and benefit industry and society.
