The Iowa NSF EPSCoR project ran from 2011 – 2016 and was a joint effort by Iowa’s Regent universities: the University of Iowa, University of Northern Iowa, and Iowa State University.
The goal of the five-year, $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation was to build Iowa’s research capacity in renewable energy and energy efficiency. The Iowa Power Fund, a state program supporting energy innovation and independence, granted the project $2 million. Iowa NSF EPSCoR was a state-wide effort.
Iowa NSF EPSCoR focused on efforts to prepare a workforce and broaden the participation of women, underrepresented minorities, and first-generation college students in the STEM pipeline, and create a community of scholars who integrate broader impacts into their research effort.
