The major business areas within MATRIC are Chemical and Environmental Technologies (focusing on project areas related to the chemical industry, industrial processes, and biomass conversion), and Advanced Systems Technologies (with a focus on software systems). Staff at MATRIC have a wide range of capabilities, and individual skills and experience can be reviewed on our staff page. Contact information is provided for many of these people.
Staff at MATRIC will work with you following the steps described here. We will meet with you to gain a better understanding of your needs and help define the potential project and its value. If desired, a non-disclosure agreement will be executed to protect your interests. If there is a mutual interest in proceeding, we will then prepare a proposal for your evaluation. When the proposal is approved and a research agreement is developed, we will assemble an experienced team to begin the project. We will conduct your research, analyze the findings, and provide you a report of the results. We will then continue to work with you as needed to provide you with the most value from the project. See our "Introduction to MATRIC" and "Working with MCR" pages for more information.

Projects with commercial organizations are conducted within MATRIC's wholly-owned subsidiary, Mid-Atlantic Commercial Research (MCR). We realize that there are many different situations and needs regarding intellectual property, so it is important to maintain flexibility in these arrangements. MCR is willing to explore a number of options, including those in which MCR owns all intellectual property and provides a license to the client for an agreed-upon period of exclusivity, MCR assigns ownership of all intellectual property to the client in accordance with a research agreement, or the client and MCR share ownership of the intellectual property and manage it together. See our page on Working with MCR for more information.
MATRIC is currently accepting resumes for technician positions expected to become open later this year. Exceptional candidates who are immediately available will be considered for a possible fit with current programs.
