The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) last week awarded $34.12 million in grants for 27 research projects in measurement science and engineering. The one-time grants, ranging from $408,996 to $1.5 million, will fund projects lasting up to three years projects at higher-education, commercial, and nonprofit organizations in 18 states.

The NIST Measurement Science and Engineering Research Grants Program, funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, supports research to advance measurement science in six areas of critical national importance, including energy, environment and climate change, information technology and cyber security, bioscience and health care, manufacturing and physical infrastructure.

“With these grants, we are leveraging our nation’s brightest minds in measurement science to address important national needs,” said NIST Director Patrick Gallagher. “These projects will bolster U.S. scientific and technological infrastructure, increasing our nation’s ability to innovate, compete, and solve scientific and technological problems.”
