SCRA invests in translational research projects to address industry needs

The South Carolina Research Authority (SCRA) has announced funding of more than $3.3 million to selected colleges and universities for translational research projects to address key challenges facing the state’s industrial base.

In its announcement, SCRA said its funding under the SCRA-Academia Collaboration Team (SACT) program is being matched by the academic institutions and industry partners, bringing the total amount of the projects to more than $6.7 million.
