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


CenTiRe operates under the auspices of the NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) program.  Every 5 years the Center is reviewed by NSF to assure that it is operating to standards and fulfilling the goals of the I/UCRC program.  CenTiRe is completing its first 5 year phase and so was reviewed by NSF this past fall. 

We are pleased to say that CenTiRe passed this review with no issues flagged or recommendations for change.  This allows the Center to operate for an additional 5 years (Phase II) under the NSF I/UCRC program.

We appreciate all who have contributed to the success of the Center during our Phase I operation – our industry members, faculty, students and support staff.  We look forward to an even more successful Phase II over the coming 5 years.
