Working with Us
NREL's interaction with industrial, university, and government partners worldwide is the key to moving advanced technologies into the marketplace and the U.S. economy. We provide opportunities to develop technology partnerships and researcher-driven collaboration.
- Work collaboratively with us on a project through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement
- Pay NREL to conduct research without your collaboration through a Work-for-Others agreement.
NREL scientists conduct joint research projects with partners around the world through international projects and less formal means, such as collaboration on specific technical topics. NREL researchers also actively participate in conferences and seminars around the world, and the lab hosts visiting scientists and postdoctoral researchers from other countries. If you would be interested in joining NREL in that capacity, access our Careers page.
