Missouri S&T and Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla are exchanging ideas and collaborating on research, education and technology transfer thanks to a memorandum of understanding (MOU) leaders from both groups signed last summer.
The MOU established an executive board and a research and education council made up of representatives from S&T and PCRMC. The partnership led to the creation of the Ozark Biomedical Initiative, which held its first research symposium in February.
This past fall, Missouri S&T signed a similar agreement with Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies. The agreement will let the two work more closely on research and development of new technology for national security.
In addition to research collaboration, the agreement allows for greater interaction between S&T faculty and students and Honeywell personnel, including the exchange of faculty, students and researchers.
