ORAU works with UT-Battelle to develop, support, and endorse partnerships with ORNL. Together with academic institutions and universities across the United States, ORAU enhances and expands scientific research and education, and encourages teacher and student participation at the laboratory.
ORAU recognizes that partnerships between our member institutions and ORNL are mutually beneficial. With access to world-class facilities at ORNL, faculty members are better able to realize their research goals. By drawing on the intellectual resources that reside at America’s colleges and universities, the national lab is better able to achieve its scientific objectives. The collaborative research initiatives pursued by ORAU with ORNL fortify the future of science at ORNL, which, in turn, strengthens America’s competitiveness in science and technology.
