leave a comment »

The Graduate School wants to give a hearty congratulations to the organizers of the North Dakota EPSCoR Conference held at the Alerus Center recently. Coinciding with the Research and Development Showcase the two events provided a complementary focus on research and academia. EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) is an NSF program designed to expand and enhance research in science and technology and North Dakota is a participating state.


The 2010 Conference program included a welcome from North Dakota State U’s Dr Phil Boudjouk, VP for Research, Creative Activities & Technology Transfer, and co-chair of ND EPSCoR. Breakout sessions focused on topics such as alternative energy, cell biology, cyberinfrastructure and more following the keynote talk from Dr Robert Twilley, Louisiana State University who presented “The Systems of Ecology of Rehabilitating Gulf Coast Ecosystems”. More than 200 research posters from around the state stretched the length of the Alerus Center and students were given an opportunity to present their projects and findings to faculty and other visitors. It was an impressive display of the depth and breadth of EPSCoR activity. Kudos to the EPSCoR organizers who coordinated a very well attended conference.
