New Hampshire NASA EPSCoR
New Hampshire NASA EPSCoR is administered through the New Hampshire Space Grant at the University of New Hampshire. Dr. Antoinette Galvin, director of the NH Space Grant, is director of NH NASA EPSCoR. A Technical Advisory Committee advises on the jurisdiction's research priorities, progress, and accomplishments.
NASA EPSCoR Inititatives
NASA's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, (NASA EPSCoR), is designed to strengthen research capabilities in jurisdictions not equably participating in competitive aerospace and aerospace-related research activities.
EPSCoR-eligible jurisdictions are offered funding to develop a more competitive research base among their member academic institutions.
Two main initiatives of NASA EPSCoR are:
1. Research & Infrastructure Development (RID) Cooperative Agreements, enabling jurisdictions to build and strengthen relationships with NASA researchers. The RID has a three-year base period with a potential single, two-year renewal. Awards are $125,000 per year. A one-to-one match (cash or in-kind) is required for every NASA dollar awarded.
2. Research Cooperative Agreements address high-priority NASA research and technology development needs. They are expected to establish research activities that will significantly contribute to strategic research and technology development in one or more NASA-related areas of study and contribute to overall research infrastructure... read more (pdf)
Awards are up to $750,000 for a 3-year period. A one-to-one match (cash or in-kind) is required for every NASA dollar awarded. NASA intends to solicit EPSCoR Research Cooperative Agreements yearly, pending funding.
