Research funding at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus was over $20 million for the 2019-2020 academic year. That is a significant increase over the 2018-2019 funding of $7.2 million. These funds come from institutions including the National Science Foundation, National Archives, National Institutes of Health and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The latest issue of Innovations Magazine describes the research projects and other innovations on campus. Stories include:
At the 5th annual State of Science and Innovation, five innovators from St. Pete were give only six minutes to share the work they are doing. Kudos to all of them - they did an amazing job!
Mark your calendar! Next month - Saturday, February 18 - is the St. Pete Science Festival in conjunction with MarineQuest. Kids and adults will have opportunity to explore science and technology first hand with over 40 exhibits from NOAA, USF, Firestone Grand Prix, and more.
Over the last 10+ years a group of volunteers have donated their time over months to prepare for the St. Pete Science Festival. These volunteers are passionate about science and technology.
