VI-EPSCoR achieves these goals by supporting research in areas of scientific inquiry linked to the Territory's economic development …

  • by improving research infrastructure to strengthen competitiveness, 
  • by increasing student participation in science and technology in order to build a skilled workforce, 
  • and by building partnerships between government, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector to create a foundation of research and development for economic growth.  

VI-EPSCoR's vision is to develop the territory's scientific capacity in support of economic development by drawing upon and strengthening the territory's physical and human resources for scientific study. A key to developing the territory's science capacity is through stimulating research that in turn provides educational opportunities for students and faculty alike.
