TWCCC operates in a flexible way, permitting individual project support as well as general support of the consortium. In many cases, joint research is being carried out at manufacturing or R&D sites. The normal fee for participation is $45,000 per year, but larger funded projects are also carried out. We hold two meetings per year in which industrial members can learn about research results and exchange ideas. 

Benefits to participants who have joined TWCCC include: 

  •  access to state of the art non-proprietary software without cost
  •  cooperative research projects that directly benefit the company
  •  detailed up-to-date information on research in progress
  •  access to high quality M.S. and Ph.D. students for eventual employment
  •  early release of technical papers and reports
  •  input on research project selection
  •  networking with other company representatives regarding process control technology
  •  leveraging of financial support
