Marine life science research and education

Rhode Island’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) conducts groundbreaking research and develops academic talent in the science and technology fields to increase competitiveness in research and development, build a more capable workforce and fuel economic growth in the Ocean State.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, RI NSF EPSCoR brings together nine of the state’s public and private institutions of higher education in pursuit of a strong and sustainable marine ecosystem that serves as a foundation for Rhode Island’s economy and quality of life. This collaborative approach creates more productive partnerships across multiple disciplines, from science to art, and draws on the strength of the state’s collective diversity.

All about us

The Current newsmagazine takes a comprehensive look at the people, projects and programs of Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR. Read about the innovative research, training, education and outreach at our partner institutions across the Ocean State.

Adventures in STEM

Across the Ocean State, Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR and its partner institutions have delivered Hands-on Science Experiences to nearly 2,000 K-12 students from 23 schools in five years of outreach programming to help broaden the STEM pipeline.

We are RI EPSCoR

From the sediment of the ocean’s floor to the water’s surface, Rhode Island researchers explore the impact of climate change on marine life and ecosystems so that we can maintain precious resources and better prepare for what the future holds.
