The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP)
is a network of researchers, educators and industry volunteers
working together to transform fluid power—how it is studied, applied and taught. Through research, the
network is creating hydraulic and pneumatic technology that is compact, efficient and effective. Through
education and outreach, knowledge about fluid power is being transferred to diverse audiences—students
of all ages, users of fluid power, and the general public. NFPA is proud to be an affiliate of the CCEFP.
NFPA brought the fluid power industry together to compete for and win the
multi-million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation that made
the CCEFP possible. We continue to be active in CCEFP activities and events,
helping our members engage with its expanding research base and student
population. The CCEFP is a central strategy in our efforts to advance fluid
power technology and help our members connect to talent development
pipelines to develop the future of their businesses.
