Faculty Members

The NSF Industry & University Cooperative Research Center program is a vehicle for encouraging formal, topical relationships between academic institutions and industry collaborators. Research projects that make a good fit to the program and to the CB²:

  • Aim to solve an applied problem on an aspect of the bioplastics or biocomposites supply chain.
  • May be of particular interest to one industry partner but are preferably of broader significance.
  • Build off of collaborative projects you have had with potential members in the past.
  • Highlight the unique capabilities and expertise of affiliated faculty.
  • Offer precompetitive but compelling solutions to difficulties that the industry must overcome.
