Montana joined the NSF EPSCoR program in 1980 and has developed a multitude of competitively-funded EPSCoR projects over time. Although each project is designed with unique research, education, and broader engagement objectives, the cumulative impact continues over time. Below you can find summaries of current and historic NSF EPSCoR projects in Montana.
The NSF awarded a total of $6 million in August 2017 for a collaboration at MSU as well as the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and the University of Oklahoma. The project’s abbreviated name is BuG ReMeDEE (pronounced “bug remedy”).
A regional interdisciplinary team led by Montana State University with the University of Wyoming and University of South Dakota to develop new innovations at the intersection of food, energy and water systems while training the next generation of scientists.
RII Track-4: Governing Social-Ecological Transformation across Working Landscapes. The goal of this research is to better understand the potential for human-led transformations of degraded agricultural systems across the U.S.
RII Track-4: Strengthening structural biology research with single particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). The fellowship will provide the PI with training on Cryo-EM and associated techniques, which will be used in his work on the analysis of the structure and function of specific proteins.
The Montana Northern Tier Network (MT-NTN) extends the reach and capability of the Montana University System’s (MUS)fiber network. It improved the research and education connectivity access across Montana.
