The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced four new engineering research centers focused on bioengineering, electric vehicles, quantum technology, and precision agriculture. NSF is investing $104 million in the four new centers over the next five years. NSF first started creating engineering research centers in 1985 and has funded 75 centers over the years. Currently, NSF is supporting 18 centers, including the four new ones. Each center can receive NSF funding for up to ten years, and during that time the centers are expected to build partnerships with industry, academia, and government agencies so they are able to sustain themselves into the future.
