COLLEGE STATION - Texas A&M is one of eight universities selected by technology giant Google and it subsidiary Motorola for a groundbreaking research agreement. Motorola negotiated a common agreement for conducting joint research that would allow the company to initiate a project rapidly with one or more universities.

Researchers will be able to set up small and large research projects with people at these universities in less than 30 days. Ultimately, improving the speed needed to create these projects will help get new technology developed via partnerships into the marketplace more quickly.

Motorola announced the agreement saying it will streamline its joint research projects by funneling company dollars to top researchers across the nation. The universities do not receive any funding up front, only when a project is initiated.

The agreement specifies that Google has the option to negotiate exclusive licensing of a technology for particular uses that it has funded the university to develop.

Motorola selected 

  • California Institute of Technology,
  • Carnegie Mellon University,
  • Harvard University,
  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
  • Stanford University,
  • Texas A&M University, and
  • Virginia Tech for the partnership.
