Guam EPSCoR Steering Committee Meets at Governor's Complex.
Guam EPSCoR will incorporate scientific discoveries into regional teaching programs, graduate education, and public participation in scientific research. The project will also enhance the university’s cyberinfrastructure and internet connectivity to meet the comprehensive data exchange requirements of the project.  

EPSCoR goals:

a) to provide strategic programs and opportunities for EPSCoR participants that stimulate sustainable improvements in their R&D capacity and competitiveness;
b) to advance science and engineering capabilities in EPSCoR jurisdictions for discovery, innovation, and overall knowledge-based prosperity.

EPSCoR Objectives:
  • to catalyze key research themes and related activities within and among EPSCoR jurisdictions that empower knowledge generation, dissemination and application;
  • to activate effective jurisdictional and regional collaborations among academic, government and private sector stakeholders that advance scientific research, promote innovation and provide multiple societal benefits;
  • to broaden participation in science and engineering by institutions, organizations and people within and among EPSCoR jurisdictions;
  • to use EPSCoR for development, implementation and evaluation of future programmatic experiments that motivate positive change and progression.
