Science and Technology Centers (STC): Integrative Partnerships

The Science and Technology Centers (STC): Integrative Partnerships program supports innovative, complex research and education projects that require large-scale, long-term awards. STCs conduct world-class research through partnerships among academic institutions, national laboratories, industry, and other organizations and through international collaborations. The centers undertake interdisciplinary, often transformative research, and by integrating research and education, help the nation prepare a world-class science and engineering workforce.
