US: The University of Kansas and Honeywell have collaborated together to develop national security projects. A collaboration agreement was signed on Tuesday between the two organisations. The agreement will expedite future research contracts funded through Honeywell, enabling the two organizations to work more closely on research and development projects.
It will also promote interaction and exchange between KU researchers and Honeywell personnel. “KU’s strategic plan, Bold Aspirations, promotes the application of scholarship in service to the state, nation and world,” said Sara Rosen, interim provost and executive vice chancellor. “This includes working to ensure the safety and security of civilian populations in the U.S. and elsewhere. This collaboration with Honeywell gives faculty and students an opportunity to engage in research that has far-reaching public impact.”
Honeywell manages and operates the National Security Campus in Kansas City, Missouri, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration. With more than 2,700 employees, the National Security Campus is a government-sponsored, multi-mission engineering and manufacturing enterprise delivering trusted national security products and government services.
