of low likelihood to be funded; and second, funders can rapidly explore and vet ideas for investments that fit with their current product offerings or solve a particular problem. This would create true partnerships between academics and research funders. In my opinion, innovation is most effective with a true partnership," he says.  In the end, each side needs to understand what the other side can deliver. "The link between academia and industry used to be the research centers of paper companies. These are mostly gone now," adds Coffin. "Most academic researchers cannot answer everyday mill problems because they do not have the daily exposure to the industrial environment. We do have lots of knowledge about our respective field study and can make worthy contributions." We asked nine leading US universities with forest products-based research laboratories for an update on their programs and activities. All are members of the Pulp and Paper Education and Research Alliance (PPERA). Each PPERA university partner has various supportive relationships with industry and government designed to strengthen the contributions of higher education to the pulp, paper, and allied industries. AUBURN UNIVERSITY, AUBURN, AL Alabama Center for Paper and Bioresource Engineering Auburn Pulp and Paper Foundation Alabama Center for Paper and Bioresource Engineering (AC-PABE) conducts fundamental and applied research aligned with the industry's research agenda. Research focuses on advanced manufacturing technologies in pulping, brownstock washing, bleaching, and papermaking. Another area of research is value-added applications and products from lignocellulose biomass. One of Auburn's newest initiatives is to actively offer a range of research and technical services to pulp and paper and allied industries; students from the pulp and paper scholarship program, supported by Auburn Pulp and Paper Foundation, gain experience in these industry-aligned research and testing projects. This initiative has gained strong support from the school's industrial partners. MIAMI UNIVERSITY, OXFORD, OH Department of Chemical, Paper and Biomedical Engineering Paper Science and Engineering Foundation Miami's strong paper engineering curriculum dates back to 1957; the Paper Science and Teams of students discuss the Engineering Challenge at the 2016 TAPPI Student Summit. Engineering Foundation was established in 1960, as the first PS&E students were graduating. The foundation started with a number of donations from area paper mills and immediately began a scholarship program; while that tradition continues, the foundation's role now extends to helping industry partners connect with Miami's engineering talent. Working within the university's Chemical, Paper and Biomedical Engineering department, the PS&E Foundation has dedicated significant funds to support the faculty, the paper labs, and the students. Research focuses on paper physics, specifically the structure and response of tissue products and the performance of packaging. NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY, RALEIGH, NC Department of Forest Biomaterials The NC State Pulp and Paper Foundation With roots dating to 1929, NCSU's Department of Forest Biomaterials offers both undergraduate and graduate academic programs. The department conducts interdisciplinary research to uncover fundamental science and create an understanding of sustainable biomaterials, improves existing engineering and technological processes, and creates innovation in paper science and engineering, sustainable biomaterials and bioenergy. The NC State Pulp and Paper Foundation partners with alumni, corporations, friends, and foundations to generate support for the continued success of the NCSU Paper Science and Engineering Program in the Department of Forest Biomaterials. STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK, SYRACUSE, NY College of Environmental Science and Forestry Syracuse Pulp and Paper Foundation The SUNY-ESF Paper and Bioprocess Engineering Department maintains a strong research program through support from external research grants and individual company funding. The research interests of faculty members include not only the traditional areas of pulp and paper research, but over the past decade have expanded into bioprocess engineering areas such as biofuel production and biodegradable plastics.
