The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recommended awards for 24 projects in communities around the country to help translate knowledge gained from basic research into new products, businesses and services, as well as to provide workforce education and training opportunities focused on innovation. The recommended Partnerships For Innovation (PFI) awards cover projects in 20 states and Puerto Rico, total more than $14 million, each averaging about $600,000 over two or three years. The PFI program, new this year, helps build creative interactions in local communities between colleges and universities, government agencies, foundations and private corporations. Each partnership is tailored to help a specific community better position itself to accommodate research and development at the local and regional level, with the goal of advancing local economic and educational opportunities. One project in particular focusses on innovation in advanced composite materials for highways.
