The goal of the Vermont NASA/EPSCoR Program is to promote the development of statewide research infrastructure in areas that are of strategic importance to the NASA mission while concurrently supporting Vermont’s technology priorities. By fostering partnerships between NASA center research assets, academic institutions, and local industry, the NASA EPSCoR Program contributes to industrial science and technology capabilities, higher education research capabilities, and economic development of the State. The unique focus of the Program upon NASArelevant research and technological development resonates with the existing excellence in aviation, aeronautical, and aerospace excellence already present within Vermont. Indeed, the growth of these activities within the academic and commercial sectors in the past decade has been extremely exciting to be a part of, both as a Director and a researcher. In addition to technology development, NASA’s focus on Earth science – including climate change – reflects the environmental values of our State.
