EPSCoR

The Water Planet
 

NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. In achieving this mission, NASA depends upon the private sector, educational institutions, and other nonprofit organizations for the greater part of its research needs. Therefore, NASA encourages the submission of unique and innovative unsolicited proposals which will further the agency's mission.

NEVADA NASA EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM TO STIMULATE COMPETITIVE RESEARCH (EPSCoR)

The NASA EPSCoR program strengthens the research capabilities of jurisdictions that have not had a competitive advantage to participate in aerospace and aerospace-related research activities. EPSCoR provides eligible jurisdictions with funding opportunities to develop a more active research base by involving their academic and research institutions. Nevada began working with a NASA EPSCoR planning grant in 1999. Through this grant, Nevada has the opportunity to establish research and development competitiveness and strengthen its economy through the expansion of aerospace technology. Current research areas includes:
