The Engineering Research Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering is part of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Engineering Research Centers program. The program, begun in 1985, aims to promote technological breakthroughs for new products and services, and prepare U.S. engineering graduates for jobs in the global economy. NSF is providing the center with $18.5 million during the next five years. The center is based at the University of Washington, with research partners at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, San Diego State University, and historically minority serving institutions, Morehouse College and Spelman College, both in Atlanta, and Southwestern College, in Chula Vista. Other collaborators include researchers at the University of British Columbia and the University of Tokyo, and such nonacademic research institutions as the Allen Institute for Brain Science, the La Jolla Bioengineering Institute, and hospitals in Seattle and San Diego.
