The OTRC Research Consortium includes some of the United States’ largest companies as well as small consulting firms. The Consortium was formed when the center opened in 1988 as a means for industry to participate in OTRC’s research initiatives.
The purposes of industry participation are:
- To demonstrate industry’s sincere interest in the Center program.
- To assist in identifying and guiding the research program toward problems amenable to academic research and of significant value to the industry.
- To provide hands-on experience for the students and to develop close associations between the faculty, students and industry experts.
- To promptly and efficiently transfer the technology to the industry for its development and application.
OTRC understands that companies wish to participate at varying levels, therefore, three levels of participation have been established. For more information on how your company can become a consortium member, please contact us.
The OTRC wishes to thank the following members for their ongoing support of our research initiatives.
