Toyota Material Handling North America’s (TMHNA) University Research Program is now open for submissions. The sponsored research program, created to drive and advance the next generation of material handling industry technology, will be accepting proposals until December 1, 2019, through its website here.

The program was created to encourage professors and student researchers to develop innovative solutions for the material handling industry. Applicants from North American universities will be evaluated on several criteria, including their possible impact on the future of the manufacturing industry, timeline, and feasibility of budget. Applicants with selected proposals will be announced at MODEX 2020, March 9-12, 2020, in Atlanta.

“This program reflects our mission to provide customers — and the material handling industry as a whole — with creative solutions and new innovations,” said TMHNA President and CEO Brett Wood. “We believe university engineering programs are already working on smart solutions that can be applied to the material handling industry. Send us your proposals, and let’s build the future of this industry together.”
