The goal of the Center is to foster faculty research and collaborations (with industry and other faculty) which will benefit the surrounding communities through projects which are applied in nature.
Grants of up to $1,000 are awarded to assist faculty in exploration of applied research opportunities. Grant applications of less than $1,000 are encouraged. Projects involving more than one faculty are capped at $1,500.
Faculty Expertise Inventory
The Center maintains a database of faculty expertise and research interests to assist faculty and clients in finding faculty researchers for projects.
