ORAU expands opportunities for research and education for our consortium member universities

From its inception in 1946, ORAU has partnered with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to build upon the new science and technology that arose out of the Manhattan Project. Today, ORAU’s consortium provides access to major research universities and their unique capabilities which facilitate an integrated solution that incorporates state-of-the-art science and technology.

That same spirit of partnership continues today. The ORAU consortium encompasses 115 Ph.D.-granting universities across the United States, the United Kingdom, and Puerto Rico and our reach extends to federal research labs nationwide.
