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, Rhode Island 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.
