NDSU: New Partnerships Announced

November 17, 2013

NDSU and Cogi, a California technology company, have a new software application partnership through NDSU’s state-funded Center of Excellence in Sensors, Communications and Controls. The Centers of Excellence program partners research and development hubs from the state’s campuses with private companies to stimulate technology-led economic development.

The Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute at NDSU will partner with the Western Transportation Institute at Montana State University on a new Small Urban and Rural Livability Center funded by a two-year, $2.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. NDSU will provide expertise in transit and rural livability.

NDSU signed a memorandum of understanding with the Sanford College of Nursing Board of Directors and the Board of Directors for Sanford Bismarck to discuss a partnership for nursing education. The partnership would create opportunities for students and help meet the state’s need for nurses.
