Purdue Center for Regional Development to Support NSF Engines Initiative, Evaluate Regional Impact

July 18, 2023

The Purdue Center for Regional Development, as part of the Office of Engagement, has been awarded a one-year contract from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) to establish the framework and process to evaluate the impact of the first-ever NSF Regional Innovation Engines (NSF Engines) competition. The NSF Engines program is a federal grant program intended to stimulate innovation-driven economic growth in every U.S. region, with special attention to underperforming or disadvantaged regions.

The PCRD will work with NSF to develop a robust evaluation framework. This will allow NSF to assess the growth of awarded NSF Engines and gain insights into the program’s impact across the country.
