Join the Nation’s Top Innovators

Joining the ARCNet Consortium is quick and easy.  However, we do require certain minimum qualifications found in the application section.  The cost is $500 per member annually, regardless of size or status.  Membership grants you access to a member’s portal where you will be updated with detailed information about consortium business and upcoming opportunities.

Membership also allows you to be a part of the collaborative collider process where you can pitch your research or team with other members.  The membership fee is a small investment to get involved and see what’s going on with the ARCNet consortium, and how you can contribute.
