The Institute, which was approved by the State Board of Higher Education on July 29, 2010, is investing in the development of multidisciplinary initiatives to address key energy related challenges facing society. IES is pursuing an integrated approach to solving energy challenges that involves science and technology; society, health and human behavior; economics and business; and policy and regulations.

We are soliciting seed funding proposals from UND faculty members outside the School of Engineering and Mines that address important energy challenges in education, research, and outreach. A total of $10,000 has been set aside for funding and we anticipate making five awards for $2,000 each.
