Researchers with new and exciting ideas are key to JPL's success, which is why JPL invests heavily in research and development activities. These investments often make use of strategic university and industry partners who are key to achieving advances in science and technology and ensuring mission success. Funding is available for those tasks that have strong partnerships and show the promise of making advances on the cutting edge of research.
JPL is committed to working with industry to transfer technologies and develop commercial products and services, which employ NASA developed technologies, but address Non-NASA needs.
Small businesses can be valuable partners in JPL's efforts to advance technologies in new and innovative ways. Information on different opportunties can be found below.
