The purpose of the Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Program is to provide support for lasting improvements in a jurisdiction's academic research infrastructure, that is, its research capacity in identified areas of research and education in science and engineering that are aligned with the jurisdiction's Science and technology plan. RII activities build the core infrastructure needed to develop both individual and collaborative efforts for the successful pursuit of significant jurisdictional and regional opportunities in science and engineering. The RII award adds specific value to the jurisdiction's academic infrastructure not generally available through other funding sources.
