Ward Talks to BDN about Government Shutdown’s Effect on Research

Jake Ward, vice president of innovation and economic development at the University of Maine, spoke with the Bangor Daily News for the article, “Shutdown jeopardizing science and technology statewide.” Ward said federal grants for research that have already been issued have not been affected by the government shutdown. However, the federal government is not accepting new grant applications or finalizing recently awarded contracts, such as a grant proposal by the Advanced Structures and Composites Center to modify work on on a wind tunnel wave tank. Ward said a delay in the approval of the grant could push construction of the tank.
