The effort is in addition to a new South Dakota Research & Innovation Center, which was recently created to link university-based research and National Science Foundation research priorities.

The new Governor Research Centers each will receive $2 million in state funding over the next five years. The Advanced Manufacturing Process Technology Transition & Training and the Composite & Nanocomposite Advanced Manufacturing centers will be under the direction of School of Mines faculty members. The centers will collaborate with researchers at other public universities.

Paul Turman of the Board of Regents says the centers were chosen based on strong industry relations with and out-of-state and South Dakota companies.
