Surdna Foundation

In 2050, approximately half of the U.S. building stock will consist of buildings that exist today. Considering that buildings contribute to nearly 40% of our country's carbon emissions, which runs up costs and compounds environmental problems, we know that improving the efficiency of the existing building stock is critical.

The purpose of the Research Collaboration Fellowship is to initiate and foster research collaborations between Penn State faculty at the University Park (UP) or the College of Medicine (CoM) and at campuses across the Commonwealth. Through this program faculty members with mutual research interests will be encouraged to form research partnerships and to jointly conduct research projects.
