Investing in basic research in science and engineering yields positive economic benefits for America and for the state or region that hosts each project. This is the underlying value of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, known as EPSCoR. NSF EPSCoR promotes strategic investments in science and engineering programs that build research and development capacity in 31 states and jurisdictions. Listen to EPSCoR project directors from across the country describe how EPSCoR has enhanced scientific discovery, strengthened research infrastructure and spurred technological innovations that drive economic growth.
