January 12, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

General Motors Corp. (GM, Detroit, MI) and Duke University (Durham, NC) have agreed on a multi-year teaching and research project to further efforts to develop fuel cell technology by 2010. Duke's Fuqua School of Business will lead the project with participation from the Pratt School of Engineering and the Terry Sanford Institute of Public Policy.

The endeavor begins January 14, 2004, with the start of a graduate-level course for students that will teach them to understand and manage a broad set of issues associated with technological change. General Motors has given Duke an initial donation of about $500,000 for the project.
