Abstract/ Summary

The University of Maine System (UMS) is responsible for conducting research and development that supports and expands the Maine economy. These efforts are primarily led by the University of Maine (UMaine), the land grant, sea grant, and space grant university of the State. UMaine partners with the other system campuses to ensure that its efforts are indeed statewide in focus and impact. The purpose of the Research Reinvestment Fund (RRF) is to strengthen research and development activities that are tied to Maine businesses, and to industries that are critical to the future of Maine. The Board of Trustees (BOT) committed an initial $10.5MM for this initiative (2.1MM/year for 5 years, FY15 – FY19), from savings accruing from the UMS Administrative Reviews.
