The National Science Foundation today announced an $18.5 million grant to establish an Engineering Research Center (ERC) for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering based at the University of Washington with San Diego State University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as research partners.
Also partnering in the ERC are historically minority-serving institutions Spelman College and Morehouse College, both in Atlanta, and Southwestern College in Chula Vista, Calif. International partners are the University of British Columbia and the University of Tokyo.
All NSF-funded engineering research centers are mandated to integrate research with education and community outreach. This new ERC will work with MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement Programs) and school districts in Seattle and San Diego to develop neural robotics curriculum for middle school and high school students
