2010 Maine EPSCoR State Conference

November 8, 2010
Wells Conference Center, University of Maine, Orono

The Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is a program directed at states that have historically received lesser amounts of federal R&D funding.  Through this program, states develop partnerships between their higher education institutions, industry, government, and others to effect lasting improvements in their R&D infrastructure, capacity, and national competitiveness.  Maine EPSCoR at the University of Maine oversees and implements the NSF EPSCoR programs.

The goals of this conference are to:

  • provide information & networking opportunities for EPSCoR/IDeA programs
  • provide information & connections to help increase R&D capacity & competitiveness
  • provide networking opportunities for research & educational outreach collaborations
  • provide a showcase for research being done in the region
