A letter of affiliation is a formal letter written to recognize the affiliation between two parties. It is commonly used in the business world to recognize joint ventures and to verify that two parties are working together. Letters of affiliation are also common in the academic world, where universities may work together on specific research projects. Letters of affiliation are usually pretty basic, and briefly lay out the responsibilities of each party.
