The NFPA Education and Technology Foundation is working to increase the number of university students educated in fluid power, and one of the ways it does that is by supporting academic researchers in fluid power. This helps to engage and build the careers of current and future university faculty in a position to teach fluid power to undergraduate engineers on their campuses. With this purpose in mind, the NFPA Foundation is again launching its Research Supplement program from which it will award research supplements to faculty members working on fluid power research at their university.
The research supplements from the NFPA Foundation are intended to provide travel support so that each faculty member and one of their graduate students can attend and present their research at a series of designated industry conferences and research summits. This will help better connect these researchers with the fluid power industry and allow better exchange of ideas. Any funds not spent on travel will be used in general support of the research project itself.
Recipients will attend and present the project associated with their research award at the two summits of the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP), to be scheduled for October 2022 and April 2023.
Please promote the Research Supplement program to your university faculty contacts. Full details and the application form can be found at:
The deadline to apply is July 29, 2022. Contact Eric Lanke at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
