NSF awards $68 million for new engineering centers

ARLINGTON, Va.- The National Science Foundation (NSF), the independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering, announces four new Engineering Research Centers (ERCs), an initial estimated NSF investment of $68 million over the next five years.

The centers will conduct pioneering research in emerging technologies and train the next generation of engineers. Each center, while based at a university, is a collaborative partnership, drawing together individuals and resources from such entities as universities, industry partners, and state governments. The maximum possible duration of NSF support is 10 years, after which the ERCs are expected to become self-sufficient.

"The ERCs advance knowledge and develop new technologies to transform U.S. industry. The centers foster collaboration among researchers from many disciplines and provide an educational and research environment that prepares a new generation of engineering leaders", said Dr. John Brighton, Assistant Director for Engineering at NSF.

NSF will provide roughly $17 million to each center over the next five years, with each center focusing on a specific area:

Engineering Research Center for Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Science and Technology (EUV ERC), headquartered at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, will develop short-wavelength, optical measurement instrumentation to further nanoscience and nanotechnology research.

Engineering Research Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis (CEBC), headquartered at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, will develop environmentally benign catalytic processes to reduce pollution from the manufacture of chemicals.

Engineering Research Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA), headquartered at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, will develop sensing networks and information systems to improve the dete
