The Center for Paper Business and Industry Studies (CPBIS), a Sloan Foundation Industry Studies Center (Sloan Center) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (GT), created in partnership with the paper industry in 2000, has been awarded its second three-year grant – totalling 1.3 million – from the Sloan Foundation to continue building an academic centre that understands the paper industry.
Sloan has collaborated with 21 different industries – including the paper industry – and 17 universities in the USA to create a family of Sloan Centers. These highly innovative Industry Studies Centers collectively cover a wide area of the manufacturing and service sectors of the American economy.
According to Dr Gail Pesyna, co-director of Sloan’s Industry Studies Centers Program, “the objective of our Industry Studies Centers’ Program is to work directly with industries and universities to create academic communities that understand industries and to encourage a direct approach to the companies and people of each industry for data and observations. At Sloan, we believe observation-based work by well informed academics, such as that at CPBIS, will, in the long run, lead to substantial practical contributions to the industries studied.”
