Two alternative energy projects led by MSU professors were chosen last week to receive grants from the University Research Corridor, or URC, the partnership among MSU, Wayne State University and University of Michigan, the state's three research universities.
Provosts from each of the universities provided $100,000 throughout three years to fund the grants, which were announced at the Detroit Regional Chamber's Mackinac Policy Conference last week.
The proposals, which were chosen from 13 projects presented to the URC, had to involve researchers from at least two of the universities.
One group is working with nanomaterials to find a way to more efficiently create thermoelectric materials, or materials that use heat to create electricity.
Thermoelectric materials already exist but the issues lie in how to make those materials more efficient, said Stephanie Brock, a Wayne State associate professor of chemistry.
