Project Collaboration

Our member-driven projects are a key benefit of MTI membership. MTI’s expert technical community provides member companies with opportunities to combine resources, leverage higher funding, utilize the power of networking and access a more diverse knowledge pool to solve critical industry challenges. The research conducted is a collaborative process, typically vetted through MTI’s Project Development Committees (PDCs), working toward generating strategic project ideas to benefit members and the industry.

Project Process

Many projects begin their journey as a result of ideas from other MTI resources such as the MTI Forum, MTI Knowledge Roundtables and the global Technical Advisory Council (TAC) meetings. When a Champion(s) has volunteered to lead the team, these projects typically move out of the PDCs and are designated as Potential Projects. The end goal is for the projects to be presented and approved for funding to develop products and/or resources that will benefit MTI members. Completed projects ultimately replenish and further improve MTI knowledge in the Technical Resource Library, MTI Forum, training programs and other resources.
