Research & Development

Introduction

Jump to:

This section introduces a number of links to organizations and databases that can assist technology developers, suppliers, and investors advance the research and development, stages of their environmental technologies. Assistance in this area can take a variety of forms, including technical advice, access to laboratory facilities or test sites, databases of existing technologies, conduct of R&D, opportunities to publish, network, and otherwise communicate in specialized technology areas, and funding of R&D. Some of the same sources also pertain to demonstration, testing, and evaluation, which is covered in the next section of this web site.

Often, a given organization, such as a government or university research center can provide assistance in several of these areas. For example, some university research centers assist DOE or DOD in evaluating grant proposals, and also make their laboratory facilities and technical experts available to technology developers. Universities or other organizations may take a financial interest in a company or technology and also provide technical, marketing, or business planning assistance.

The organizations listed in this section are divided into two types:

  • Organizations that coordinate, sponsor, direct and advise on the disposition of R&D resources. These organizations include national laboratories and universities that award grants, establish cooperative agreements, provide expert advice, conduct workshops and conferences, and provide facilities or testing sites, among other things. Some of these organizations also conduct R&D.
  • Other R&D resources, such as potential partners, consultants, databases and other information sources, and mechanisms for networking opportunities.
