Ward Talks to MPBN about Government Shutdown Effects

Jake Ward, vice president of innovation and economic development at the University of Maine, spoke with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network about the effects of the federal government’s shutdown on university research. Ward said the federal government is currently 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 a wind tunnel wave tank. Ward said a delay in the approval of the grant could put construction of the tank on hold.
