Cooperative Research Program

Advancement on leading fronts such as regulation, safety, the environment and energy often requires change throughout the mobility supply chain or portions of it. Change creates the need for new designs, systems and standards. For each company affected, this almost certainly means rising--even soaring--investment in the research, design, development, and testing of new products and systems. Where one issue is faced by many like-companies, an economical pathway emerges for joint venture research to study pre-competitive technical areas: the Cooperative Research Program (CRP) of SAE International .
