The work of Sepsis Innovation Collaborative (SIC) is made possible by the leadership and participation of its members, and SIC is dedicated to cultivating and nurturing a diverse ecosystem of ideas, perspectives, and people. Membership is open to organizations and individuals from the public and private sectors that are committed to accelerating innovation through a collaborative effort. Multiple pathways for participation and opportunities for members to contribute will ensure sustained engagement and progress towards the collective goals of SIC to serve the public good through trans-competitive collaboration.

Benefits of SIC membership include:

  • A seat at the collective table: shape the sepsis innovation landscape through collaborative strategic planning and development of a common agenda to accelerate innovation. Each SIC member organization has one (1) voting representative (or a designated alternate) for SIC decision-making purposes.
  • Access to information: stay up to date on the latest developments in infection management and sepsis through SIC member updates, analyses, and reports. It is the intent to invite U.S. government agency staff to attend and potentially present on open, relevant activities. SIC distributes monthly updates to members on all SIC projects, emerging trends, and upcoming opportunities.
  • Engagement with stakeholders: participate in SIC member communities, such as the Infection Management/Sepsis Collaborative Community (IMSCC), which is focused on accelerating innovation specifically in the medical device ecosystem. These communities provide members with the opportunity to tackle priority issues through a variety of high impact projects. Members also have the opportunity to propose and champion the development of new SIC communities.
  • Networking with stakeholders: connect with fellow thought leaders and decision makers through SIC-member events and forums.
  • Program and research funding: opportunity to fund new SIC-directed research projects, convenings, and other innovation projects.
  • Recognition as an SIC partner: upon joining SIC, members are listed on the SIC public website and introduced to the sepsis community as a partner in the collaborative effort to solve sepsis and save lives.
