Nevada System Sponsored Programs and EPSCoR
The Nevada System Sponsored Programs (SPO) & Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is part of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE).
The role of the SPO is to provide facilitation of externally funded research and other scholarly activities and the maintenance of fiscal accountability and regulatory compliance. The SPO is responsible for all financial actions and required reporting.
The Nevada EPSCoR Advisory Committee (NVEAC) is an independent body responsible for providing guidance to Nevada’s EPSCoR programs by identifying potential research and development (R&D) improvement strategies and activities that are consistent with Nevada’s Science and Technology Plan and most likely to advance the further development of a nationally competitive academic R&D capability.
