NASA EPSCoR Stimuli 2014 -15

NASA EPSCoR not only provides seed funding for establishing collaboration with NASA, it also fills the gap in the overall mosaic of our state’s coordinated efforts in fostering collaborative research in West Virginia. Our college-university collaboration program has faculty from our research universities collaborating with our four-year college faculty to get them to participate and contribute to our state’s scientific and economic development plans. West Virginia is working to overcome its legacy as one of the nation’s poorest states by directing attention to science and technology. Despite gains made, West Virginia still has a long way to go to achieve national research competitiveness. Because of our EPSCoR research programs, faculty and students across the state have been able to engage in research directly tied to work going on at NASA centers and enterprises, and are increasing their ability to develop further research. We have specifically contributed to increased research activities across the state and increased technical workforce development, which is a high priority program for the state government.
