21st Century Truck Partners

The 21st Century Truck Partnership is an industry-government collaboration among heavy-duty engine manufacturers, heavy-duty truck and bus manufacturers, heavy hybrid powertrain manufacturers, and four federal government agencies. The partners work cooperatively to develop a balanced portfolio of research aimed at achieving their research goals, coordinating their research activities as appropriate, and making effective use of the nation’s research universities and national laboratories. Proprietary research agreements between individual companies and federal agencies, which cannot be shared with industrial competitors, will continue to be funded appropriately. By sharing information across four federal agencies and sixteen private companies, research can be focused on selected projects that show the greatest likelihood of near-term success and fleet-wide effectiveness.
