STEM grant to support education, research
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research and education activities in the Magnolia State are expected to grow with a National Science Foundation grant to enhance cyber connectivity.
With the NSF award, the Mississippi Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) will receive just over $1 million for up to two years to expand gigabit accessibility for researchers in modeling and multi-scale simulations of complex systems.
The connectivity upgrade will boost capacity to pursue collaborative research and enhance education, according to Yogi Dandass, an associate professor of computer science and engineering at Mississippi State University and principal investigator for the grant.
Mississippi’s grant is part of a $20-million national effort to fund 17 states for inter- and intra-campus connectivity enhancements.
