State and local governments work with Argonne for technical support that allows them to better serve their residents
- Cross-cutting teams of scientists and engineers from diverse disciplines
- World-class expertise, technologies and research facilities
- Proven track record of being flexible, adaptable and delivering superior results, often under extremely tight deadlines
- The ability to help connect to federal resources
There are multiple mechanisms through which state and local governments can collaborate with Argonne:
Strategic Partnership Project
A Strategic Partnership Project (SPP) is a contract that enables your state or local government to pay the laboratory to perform a defined scope of work with tasks that draw upon the unique facilities, equipment and personnel of the laboratory.
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement
A Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) is a cost-shared research and development agreement that allows your state or local government to work collaboratively with Argonne, and, as appropriate, private industry participants to share technical expertise, develop novel technologies/solutions and access intellectual property emerging from the effort.
