Program Participants

The Stanford Platform Laboratory Affiliates Program offers two levels of membership: Premium Members and Regular Members. Premium Members pay $500k per year and regular members pay $150,000 per year as fees. The program is designed to facilitate the relationship between academia and industry. These funds support research and facilitate the exploration of new innovative ideas.
