Have a New Project Idea?

The U of MN Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships connect greater Minnesota communities with the University to help solve problems and take advantage of new opportunities. Their work links University resources with community-identified, regionally-based projects in clean energy, agriculture and food systems, natural resources, and tourism and resilient communities. 

Rather than acting as a typical granting agency, the Regional Partnerships provide funding and facilitation to “buy” U of MN resources for community-based, applied research projects.
