Through collaborations between ORAU and ORAU-Member Universities, ORAU-Directed Research and Development (ODRD) harnesses innovation to strengthen and expand the scientific and technical capabilities of ORAU programs; enhance ORAU’s ability to address current and future customer needs; and supports university-engaged, applied research that enhances customer solutions.

ODRD creates a means to support additional exploratory, collaborative research opportunities with ORAU programs, and results in the greater potential for significant external research funding. ODRD competitively funds select innovative research-based approaches/solutions that fall within the intersection of core capabilities of ORAU and our member universities research interests.

ODRD is open to member universities with current Memoranda of Understanding and ORAU Value Through Partnerships External SharePoint access.
