NASA EPSCoR Rapid Response Research (R3) Program
The NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Rapid Response Research (R3) program
is a collaborative effort between NASA EPSCoR in collaboration with the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD), Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Planetary Science Division, Biological and Physical Sciences Division, Astrophysics Division (APD), Computational and Information Sciences and Technology Office (CISTO), Earth Science Division (ESD), and the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) Commercial Space Capabilities Office (CSCO), along with the Marshall Spaceflight Center (MSFC), Ames Research Center(ARC),and the Office of the Chief Health and Medical Officer (OCHMO). The goals of R3 are to provide a streamlined method to address research issues important to NASA, and to enable NASA EPSCoR researchers to work with NASA to solve research issues impacting the Agency’s programs/missions.
