Research Under the Radar

The people behind some of our country’s most widely circulated research rarely receive public credit for their work. RTI International is a research-for-hire non-profit which operates in the Research Triangle under the public radar, yet employs 2500 people and generates more than $700 million in annual revenue. RTI President & CEO Dr. Victoria Haynes shares her thoughts on using research to influence public policy decisions and preparing her company for a future with fewer government contracts. Participating in the dialogue are Jim Roberts of the Center of Innovation for NanoBiotechnology and Frank Hefner of the College of Charleston.
