Bioinorganic Highly Efficient Flexible Thermoelectirc for Producing Energetic Fabrics

The purpose of the New Mexico NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Program is to build the core competitive research strength in New Mexico, and to grow research and technology development core capabilities. We enable faculty to compete for funds from NASA and non-NASA sources outside of the EPSCoR program in order to find solutions for scientific and technical problems of importance to NASA Centers, Mission Directorates, and the Office of the Chief Technologist. New Mexico NASA EPSCoR RID focuses on collaborative activities and relationships to develop long-term, self-sustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in space and aerospace-related research. These capabilities will, in turn, contribute to New Mexico’s economic viability and expand the Nation’s base for science and technology innovation agendas. Research Initiation Grants (RIG) are offered statewide to all NMSGC, and NM NASA EPSCoR partners. It is designed to help new or transitioning faculty at New Mexico colleges and universities develop nationally competitive research programs. Faculty can apply for up to $25,000 in RIG funding. 11 research projects are currently supported from New Mexico State University, University of New Mexico and New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. Faculty are required to: • Secure non-federal matching funds • Create a research program that supports at least one of NASA’s strategic goals • Secure a NASA collaborator • Indicate where follow-on funding will come from • Track students All grants are competitively awarded.
