NASA Nebraska EPSCoR

NASA's Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) within Nebraska establishes partnerships with government, higher education and industry that are designed to effect lasting improvements in the state's research infrastructure, R&D capacity and hence, its national R&D competitiveness.  Nebraska's successful NASA EPSCoR recipient profiles demonstrate how NASA is partnering within the state to achieve its mission.

The NASA Nebraska EPSCoR program facilitates mini-grant projects at the state level, growing them to become competitive at the national level.
