The A-CAPP Center is pursuing a comprehensive portfolio of research projects and outreach activities aimed at providing industry and governmental partners evidence-based lessons for preventing and responding to product counterfeiting and brand protection issues. The A-CAPP Center’s research benefits not only from the immediate access to a cadre of internationally recognized scholars in relevant disciplines, but also the analysis of counterfeiting across multiple sectors, such as manufacturing, technology, and pharmaceutical.


While our research is rooted in criminal justice, integration with other MSU partners offers unparalleled expertise. We couldn’t begin to provide the groundbreaking research that we do without the support of our sponsors. The A-CAPP Center’s objective is to put our research into action by providing opportunities for industry and governmental partners to collaborate on specific issues and to offer a suite of educational opportunities to disseminate research.
