When inspiration strikes, having access to scientific instrumentation can make the difference in being able to pursue a world-changing idea. Lack of funding should not be a barrier.
Through the generosity of the Deans of the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, and the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources, the barrier is coming down. On January 25th, the WVU Shared Research Facilities will be announcing the Deans’ Instrumentation Seed Program for Innovative Research. Deans’ InSPIRe is designed to allow faculty in these participating colleges limited, free access to SRF instrumentation. The WVU Research Office is matching the Deans’ contributions, dollar for dollar.
