The Center for E3S is a Science and Technology Center (STC) funded by the National Science Foundation’s Integrative Partnerships Program, and is a consortium of world class academic institutions. We are working in a collaborative and innovative environment to make fundamental and conceptual breakthroughs in the underlying physics, chemistry, and materials science of electronic systems, breakthroughs needed to reduce these systems’ energy consumption by orders of magnitude.
The National Science Foundation’s Integrative Partnerships Program supports innovative, potentially transformative, complex research and education projects that require large-scale, long-term awards. The Center for E3S is one of five STC’s that were awarded in 2010.
