For Project Co-Sponsors

A wide range of public, private and nonprofit organizations are OTREC partners. You can become a partner by providing a cash or soft match to OTREC projects. If you have a research idea, we can match you with a faculty member who can conduct research relating to your needs. If you want to participate in our annual request for proposals, you will need to connect with a researcher from one of our four partner campuses. Please email us for more information.
