NM EPSCoR brings together chemists, engineers, geologists and resource managers to better understand how New Mexico's uranium resources can be used sustainably with minimal impacts on water, ecosystems, and human health.
By investing in large- and small–scale facilities and critical instrumentation for algal cultivation and processing, NM EPSCoR researchers will address issues unique to the bio-algae industry in the desert southwest.
Collaborations between academia and industry are key in NM EPSCoR's efforts to explore the viability of osmotic power as an option for extracting clean energy from waste products and reducing the carbon footprint of oil and gas production.
Join NM EPSCoR & the International Balloon Museum for a talk by famous educator Dr. John Falk of Oregon State University. Event is free, but space is limited, so please RSVP.
Energize New Mexico
New Mexico's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (NM EPSCoR) is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to build the state's capacity to conduct scientific research. Faculty and students from NM universities and colleges are working to realize New Mexico's potential for sustainable energy development. NM EPSCoR is also cultivating a well-qualified Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce and supporting a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.
