Research is core to TRI’s mission as an institute. Since our formation, back in 1930, our purpose has been to use fundamental research to support industry. Today, TRI collaborates with many member companies on a wide range of research activities.
Research collaborations with member companies come in two forms: (1) one-to-one collaborations, and (2) consortia projects. One-to-one collaborations are able to focus on the needs of a single member company and are very flexible and quick to set-up. Consortia projects deal with large scientific challenges, and, with multiple sponsors, are high-budget programmes that are able to make substantial technical breakthroughs.
TRI does not seek to own any of the intellectual property coming from research collaborations. This remains the property of project sponsors. Our purpose is to build new knowledge for industry, develop our own capabilities and, with the sponsors agreement, to publish the work.
