I attended an EPSCoR meeting yesterday at the Board of Regents. As many of you know, EPSCoR is a national program where federal funding agencies are required to set aside part of their funding for EPSCoR states that receive a disproportionate share (low) of the funding from that agency. Louisiana is an EPSCoR state for most federal agencies. We discussed possible future topics for the BoR Industry-Academia meetings. Four possible topics are biomedical, digital media and software development, coastal and renewable energy. The new BoR program called OPT-IN was discussed. I will be sending a separate email on that topic. No word yet on the DOE EPSCoR announcement. I made a presentation on current efforts to have a proposal ready for the BP RFP whenever it is issued.
