US-Poland Tech Transfer Program
About US-Poland TTP
Technology Transfer Project is an initiative of the National Center for Computational Hydroscience and Engineering of The University of Mississippi (UM-NCCHE) and the Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS-IG) allowing for the transfer of computational modeling technology from UM-NCCHE to the research scientists and engineers of Polish institutions, with the financial support provided by the US Agency for International Development (US-AID) during a period of one year from 1 July, 2003 to 30 June, 2004. The use of the new state of the art research tools, computational simulation models is aimed at the solution of the problems associated with the water resources in Poland as well as the enhancement of the quality of environment in Poland.
Research proposals were solicited from selected Polish institutions leading in water resources and environmental engineering research. Submitted proposals have been reviewed by panels of Polish experts in the technical field of each proposal. Among the 12 proposals submitted for evaluation, 8 have been selected for funding. The progress and accomplishments of funded projects shall be monitored jointly by PAS-IG and UM-NCCHE.
In addition to funding and monitoring of 8 Research Projects to be carried out by various institutions in Poland, scientists of PAS-IG and UM-NCCHE have agreed to conduct collaborative research for the solution to the water resources and environmental quality problems in Poland, as well as cooperate in organizing workshops, seminars and/or symposia to promote the transfer of computational modeling technology from UM-NCCHE to Polish research scientists and engineers.
