Thirty-one research projects will receive $21M in funds through a Department of Energy effort that aims to develop capabilities in underserved regions within the U.S.
University researchers will collaborate with personnel from DOE national laboratories to explore various topics including solar energy and particle physics as part of the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research program, the department said Thursday.
DOE selected the projects through a competitive peer-review and will obligate funding from fiscal year 2020 funds. The teams will be led by universities in 19 states including Alabama and West Virginia.
The department will provide the details for each award after the completion of final contract negotiations.
