NASA EPSCoR aligns with OneOklahoma, the state’s Strategic Plan for Science and Technology in Oklahoma and supported university research in core S&T industry sectors - agriculture, energy, weather, aviation, biotech, sensors, and unmanned vehicle systems. It provided significant opportunity to foster research clusters among institutions and develop partnerships with science and technology companies: 17 new collaborations among researchers, private industry, and government resulted in external funding of $3,400,200. STEM education was advanced through 37 new or revised courses developed by EPSCoR funded faculty. Internships led to full-time employment for seven students with two science and technology companies and supported 181 students working on advanced degrees in STEM. NASA funding benefitted Oklahoma’s economic development, such as the project in which researchers developed instruments for radiation detection in space. Technology was transferred to instrumentation monitoring proton and heavy ion beams used in cancer radiation treatments, now utilized by an Oklahoma company.
