US VIRGIN ISLANDS

The US Virgin Islands Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (VI-EPSCoR) promotes the development of the Territory’s science and technology resources through multi-disciplinary research and educational programs. VI-EPSCoR achieves these goals by supporting research in areas of scientific inquiry linked to the Territory’s economic development and by building partnerships between government, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector to create a foundation of research and development for economic growth. VI-EPSCoR’s vision is to develop the territory’s scientific capacity in support of economic development by drawing upon and strengthening the territory’s physical and human resources for scientific study. A key to developing Dr. David Morris, the territory’s science capacity is through stimulating research that in turn provides educational Campus Director for opportunities for students and faculty alike.
