Strategic University Research Partnerships

Home Partnership Goals Collaboration Opportunities


The Jet Propulsion Laboratory has formal strategic partnerships with thirteen universities that have major commitments to space exploration, and broad connections to JPL.

The Strategic University Research Partnership (SURP) program supports these partnerships, providing resources to foster strong collaborative relationships. The program works with JPL researchers and our strategic partners to develop new science and technology opportunities, and provide accelerated innovation for NASA’s missions.
