Fiscal challenges and global competition threaten the U.S.'s premier leadership position in science-- and our economy. This national problem is echoed here in New Hampshire. NH EPSCoR mobilizes the states diverse scientific resources to counter these challenges and strives to uncover the hidden scientific gems that drive breakthroughs as well as to build the STEM education pipline crucial to the states economy and high tech industry. Investing in research infrastructure builds research capacity. With our partners across the state we are fueling New Hampshire's innovation engine.
NH EPSCoR's academic partners include: Dartmouth College, Great Bay Community College, Keene State College, Plymouth State University, St. Anselm College, the University of New Hampshire, and White Mountains Community College.

The NH Innovation Research Center was created by the legislature in 1991 to increase collaboration between businesses and university-based research to promote applied and basic scientific research and engineering, and to create high quality jobs through technology development and innovation.
A merit-based program designed strengthen research capabilities of jurisdictions that have not participated equably in competitive aerospace and aerospace-related research activities. NH NASA EPSCoR currently has three funded projects: 1) facilities for testing small satellite compenents; 2) the ecology and risk factors of Lyme disease in the northern US; 3) study of icing assessments in cold and alpine environments.
