The Indiana 21st Century Research & Technology Project

   Indiana 21st Century Research & Technology Project "Multi-scale Methodology for the Design of Active Materials". The Indiana 21st Century Research & Technology Fund was established by the State in 1999 to support the expansion of the high technology sector of Indiana's economy, with the expectation of creating significant economic impact and job growth.
