Research  ::  Projects by Year

Projects listed here include those that began in this year, regardless of whether funding was continued in following years, in addition to those that may have been carried over from previous funding years. For example, if a project was initiated in Year 1 and ended in Year 2, it will show up in both the Year 1 and Year 2 project lists. If the same project had ended in Year 1, however, it would only show up in the Year 1 list.

Projects may receive new designations or titles if they receive funding for more than one year; project numbers and titles listed here reflect the most recent iterations.

Direct Support Projects

Direct support projects are funded by NSF and Industry Membership to support the strategic vision of the center. Details of these projects are available to our industry members on our industry intranet.
