GOLDEN, Colo., April 20, 2009 – To celebrate a $300,000 National Science Foundation grant awarded to Colorado School of Mines’ researchers for collaborative research involving computational models for business applications, U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter presented the team today with a “big check.”

The project, titled "Design Space Analysis with Hyperdimensional Metamodels," is under the direction of Mines Engineering Professor Cameron Turner.

“With this grant, we hope to develop a computer model that can be used to improve the design of everything from daily consumer goods to renewable energy products,” said Turner.

As a result of the grant, the research at Mines is projected to run until August of 2012 and will allow up to two graduate and as many as five undergraduate students to gain valuable research experience.

“Colorado School of Mines has a world class reputation for innovative research and I am proud to support the National Science Foundation on their decision to provide this opportunity for their students. This research will provide opportunities to dramatically reduce the time it takes to design new consumer and commercial products. I strongly believe research funding is vital as we move further into the 21st Century and continue to be a leader on the cutting edge of business technology,” Perlmutter said.
