Sponsoring Research

As a business collaborating with UMass Amherst, you'll find a variety of project frameworks to meet your needs:

  • Exploratory and Fundamental Research: Projects led by recognized UMass experts in their fields under contract to your organization focus on basic research and create new knowledge while directly supporting your industrial R&D efforts. 
  • Applied Research and Technology Development:  Applied research builds upon basic science and engineering studies to yield applied and targeted results driven by sponsor specifications.
  • Scoping Projects: This option is for short-duration feasibility studies and early assessments.  Scoping projects are perfect for idea development and the concept feasibility stage.
  • Research Services:  The Research Services program provides access to UMass technical expertise and facilities.  This option is for analytical work by scientists and researchers, including consultation and data analyses.
