Man bends over at work on a manufacturing machine.

NRRI has a long history of providing technical assistance through collaboration with regional businesses and companies where R&D assistance is needed to get to the next step. Working with clients and UMD’s Center for Economic Development, NRRI identifies technical needs, develops a work scope, works with the client to secure development funding and executes the research, including Intellectual Property protection. Many times such activities generate continued relationships where NRRI is able to provide continued assistance to drive development and competitiveness.

Examples of projects include new process development, raw material replacement, new product development and testing and competitive analysis. NRRI is able to work with clients to keep their work and information proprietary for maximum advantage.
