Creative-Startups, the nation's first accelerator for creative and cultural entrepreneurs, recently debuted their 2014 Cohort during Creative Startups Week, October 20-25. The program has received national attention, and NM EPSCoR is proud to support creative entrepreneurs.
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.
Our very own Education and Outreach Coordinator, Selena Connealy, wrote a blog for the website InformalScience.org, an online community and collection of informal STEM learning projects, evaluation, and research resources. The blog focuses on the NM EPSCoR–funded Informal Science Education Network.
