PUTTING ARGONNE’S RESOURCES TO WORK FOR YOU
Industrial technology development is an important way for the national laboratories to transfer the benefits of publicly funded research to industry to help strengthen the nation’s tech- nology base. The stories highlighted in this issue of TransForum represent some of the ways Argonne works with the trans- portation industry to improve processes, create products and markets, and lead the way to cost-effective transportation solutions, which in turn lead to a healthier economic future.
By working with Argonne through various types of cost-sharing arrangements, companies can jump-start their efforts to de- velop the next generation of transportation technologies with- out shouldering the often prohibitive cost of initial R&D alone. Argonne has participated in dozens of these partnerships and has even been involved in helping to launch start-up companies based on the products and technologies developed here.
