OSU generates low-cost, world-class research. Depending on the company need, we've developed two models that provide valuable results for companies at an equitable cost while staying within the mission of the university.
The Advantage Partnerships Industry Partnering Program delivers real-world solutions by matching business needs to Oregon State expertise and resources. A joint venture of the OSU Foundation and the Research Office, the Industry Partnering Program helps industry access faculty and student talent, develop opportunities for sponsored research and use university facilities for research and development.
