JPL is committed to working with universities to accomplish the nation's space exploration goals. Strong collaborative relationships with the academic community provide accelerated innovation for NASA's missions as well as the discovery of new science and technology opportunities for the future. JPL has formal strategic relationships with ten universities with major commitments to space exploration. By cultivating collaborative efforts of mutual strategic value, we anticipate positive impact on our combined science and technology research portfolios, on our capabilities, and on our missions. The Strategic University Research Partnership (SURP) office was established to encourage and support these relationships.
