Ferguson Cited in Chronicle of Higher Education Story

An article in the Chronicle of Higher Education about a National Research Council report released this week on the future of the nation’s research institutions included comments from participant and University of Maine President Paul Ferguson. Ferguson said programs like the National Science Foundation’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) are helpful for institutions seeking to develop niche research expertise, such as UMaine’s recognized prowess in offshore wind turbines. The report discusses ways institutions can partner with business and industry to cope with the increasing stresses of reduced state and federal aid, including research funding.
