Unveiled on Capitol Hill, a video produced by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission’s Division of Science and Research highlights how West Virginia’s economy directly benefits from investments in scientific research.

Illustrated in the video is how university-based research is helping to move the Mountain State forward and features Protea Biosciences in Morgantown, a company that originated in campus settings.

The May 2 event was moderated by HEPC Chancellor Paul Hill and hosted by the National Science Foundation– the federal organization that manages the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).

“Science and innovation are top priorities for West Virginia, and key components of our economy – both in generating jobs and in federal investment,” Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., said.

“Scientific research can lead West Virginia into a new economy fortified by innovations, and this begins with our colleges and universities," said Jan Taylor, director of the Division of Science and Research. "Our hope is that this new video will help everyone understand the impact of science and technology on modern life in our state.” A link to the video can be found on the Division’s website atwww.wvresearch.org.
