Center for Tire Research
An NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center

The research and operation of CenTiRe is guided by representative(s) designated by each of the industry members to serve on the Industry Advisory Board (IAB).  Acting as a consortium of members, the IAB meets twice yearly at the Center's university sites to collectively review projects, determine future research directions, select new projects and decide on funding, and provide input on Center practices and procedures.  Other meetings may be held online to conduct specific business of the Center.  The IAB members also act as a conduit to facilitate the incorporation of the results and deliverables from the Center's research work into their respective companies.
