The Hampton Roads Research Partnership (HRRP) was a consortium of seven academic institutions, two federal research and technology laboratories, and a research institute in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, USA.
The goal of the HRRP was increased regional prosperity through technology-based economic development. The Partnership coordinated research efforts among its members and with industry, leveraged state-of-the-art facilities, and engaged the intellectual capital of some 2,000 HRRP-affiliated scientists and engineers.
Three "clusters" of local scientific expertise were identified by the Research Partnership: bioscience, modeling and simulation, and sensors. These technology clusters - a unique mix of scientific talent, business acumen and existing infrastructure - were designed to fuel an upwards cycle of technology transfer and wealth creation.
