RID Expectations and Outcomes
To develop long-term, self-sustaining, nationally competitive capabilities in NASA related research in Iowa, the RID awardees are expected to apply for grants to NASA and non-NASA related funding sources. Further, recipients are expected to increase the research infrastructure via conference presentations and publications.
The Iowa NASA EPSCoR program is managed by the Director under the oversight of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), which provides assistance, consultation, evaluation and advice to the Director. The TAC is comprised of members from the research community, government and industry.
