Virginia Tech Technical Assistance Program (TAP)

Virginia Tech's Technical Assistance Program (TAP) enables faculty members to respond quickly to market needs requiring technical expertise and provides businesses with a streamlined process for accessing this knowledge. This is a university-sponsored consulting activity intended to strengthen university and faculty relationships with external organizations.

TAP in the news: Technical Assistance Program connects university expertise with business needs

The faculty member and the company collaborate to define the scope of work. Specifically, a faculty member applies knowledge to a clearly defined process-related or technical situation and does NOT generate new knowledge or intellectual property. These activities are typically short in duration and do not exceed $25,000.
