Leveraging WPI Project Centers for Collaborative Research Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Our project gauged WPI Project Center Directors’ interest in collaborative research through a microplastics pilot. We conducted interviews and surveys of Project Center Directors, which revealed the discrepancy between the desire for collaborative research at WPI and its current state, as well as the barriers causing it. We also interviewed an Icelandic microplastics expert and developed and tested a microplastics sampling kit as a pilot collaborative research project. Lastly, to engage Project Center Directors in collaborative research, we created a website that showcases student microplastics research projects.
