Research Equipment and Incentive Grant Programs

Laboratory equipment is essential to the foundation and advancement of research and research intensive universities like Purdue have significant equipment needs. A portion of these needs are funded through private (foundations) and public (federal and state) sources. However, a significant need exists to augment these sources with internal funds to fill existing gaps to advance the research activities at Purdue.
