Industry Collaborations

Innovation is critical to the future of US industry for reducing barriers and enabling affordable, rapid, adaptable, energy-efficient manufacturing. ORNL is one of the world’s most capable resources for transforming the next generation of scientific discovery into solutions for rebuilding and revitalizing America’s manufacturing industries.

Regardless of the activity—executing a license, conducting research and development work sponsored by others, or working side by side with industry or university researchers at user facilities—we are committed to creating win-win opportunities to strengthen the competitiveness of our nation and its research enterprise. 

The MDF Technical Collaborations Program is seeking industry partners to develop and deploy new manufacturing processes or materials in U.S. manufacturing industries.
