2018 RID Program is OPEN!

Our 2018 Maine NASA EPSCoR (Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Program funds Interdisciplinary Theme-Specific VISIONEERING Workshops to generate synthesis of ideas in Maine that align with NASA and Maine’s needs. Small travel and proposal development grants are available to assist teams to continue and/or develop their project collaboration and project proposal.  Collaborative Seed Grant program funds are also available to “jump start” collaborative projects that stem from the theme specific plans generated from the workshops.

Eligible applicants are faculty/researchers at MSGC Affiliate higher education and research institutions. Individuals from for-profit institutions can participate in the proposal as co-principal investigators.
