Wyoming's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR)
EPSCoR is a federally-funded program to promote the development of science and technology capacity in the United States. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Wyoming EPSCoR supports capacity building by investing in researchers and institutions to better position them to compete for federal research funds. EPSCoR funding and state match appropriations are utilized to build science and engineering in higher education and a technology-based economy for the future. EPSCoR has helped to move the State of Wyoming along the path of research and excellence by supporting the State's research endeavors.
The goals of Wyoming EPSCoR are:
- to facilitate the building of research educational infrastructure in the state,
- to foster collaborative communication among diverse participants in STEM fields,
- to communicate goals, directions, activities, and outcomes widely,
- to administer research awards from NSF EPSCoR to increase national competitiveness, and
- to bring the national goals of the EPSCoR program to Wyoming.
A proposal writing workshop will be held Tuesday, November 19th from 12-1 p.m. in the Union, room 203. Lunch will be provided.
