"Perspectives on Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers"

Sponsored by: TMS Continuing Education Committee
Presenter: Dr. Joseph D. Defilippi and Dr. David K. Matlock
When: Monday, February 16, 12:00 noon-1:30 p.m.
Cost: $15, includes a "brown bag" lunch. No charge for attending the lecture only.

About the topic: Research programs at both industrial research laboratories and academic institutions have changed significantly over the past several years. Industry-university cooperative research centers (I/UCRC) offer unique opportunities to support the needs of both industries and universities. In this presentation, the operation and management of the Advanced Steel Processing and Products Research Center (ASPPRC), which was established in 1984 through the NSF I/UCRC program, will be reviewed from both the industrial and academic perspectives. ASPPRC is a center with 23 corporate sponsors and is dedicated to ferrous metallurgy with research focused to manufacturing industries which both use and produce steel. Corporate participants include steel producers, automotive manufactures, heavy equipment companies, and component and parts suppliers. Observations with respect to successes and pitfalls in center operations will be discussed and summarized to provide insights to those interested in establishing centers in other disciplines.
