Growing from a handful of scientists in central North Carolina in 1959 to a staff of more than 3,700 in more than 75 countries today, RTI is now one of the world’s leading independent, nonprofit research and development organizations.
Our activities both mirror and support national priorities and policies as well as diverse commercial, industrial, and academic endeavors. For instance, as public and government interest in environmental protection grew in the 1960s, so did related programs at RTI, building on our expertise in statistical, physical, and life sciences.
As our mission affirms, we are dedicated to improving the human condition by turning knowledge into practice through cutting-edge study and analysis in health and pharmaceuticals, education and training, surveys and statistics, advanced technology, international development, economic and social policy, energy and the environment, and laboratory and chemistry services.
We are proud of our scientific stature and our reputation for innovation. By continuing to conduct impartial, reliable, multidisciplinary research and by helping to develop and broker new technologies for our clients, we seek to be the world's preferred resource for turning knowledge into practice.
