Centers of Economic Excellence (endowed chairs) — a smart investment for South Carolina’s future
Abstract
Description
The General Assembly created a program designed to attract to South Carolina the world’s most talented researchers. This visionary initiative, the Centers of Economic Excellence Program (also known as endowed chairs) leverages state and private funds along with university-based research to drive economic growth. To date, the program has brought 12 world-class scientists or “endowed chairs” to our state’s universities. It has also established 30 Research Centers of Economic Excellence in areas such as nanotechnology, health sciences, future fuels, energy alternatives, automotive engineering and advanced fibers.
