As part of its innovation strategy, NetApp supports innovative research in the academic community. As part of the CTO, the Advanced Technology Group is responsible for maintaining many of these academic research relationships through sponsorships, consortium memberships, and direct collaborations.
The NetApp Faculty Fellowship (NFF) program was established to encourage leading-edge research in storage and data management and to foster relationships between academic researchers and engineers and researchers at NetApp.
NFFs are awarded based on NetApp's review of proposals initiated by faculty or researchers.

Through ATG, NetApp is currently a member of the following university-industry consortiums:
ATG occasionally identifies research needs and then works within the academic research community to sponsor projects. Unlike NFFs, these research opportunities usually are initiated by NetApp and lead to nearer term benefits to the academic and business communities: for example, stimulating interest in open source improvements, developing a more robust body of knowledge, and so on. In most situations, NetApp encourages the recipients of a sponsorship to provide their research results to the larger community free of charge or under liberal licensing agreements.
