GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota’s Energy and Environmental Research Center has increased its awards by nearly 16 percent in the last fiscal year.

Officials say the center received $28.4 million in new awards in the 12-month period ending on June 30. The EERC submitted 220 new proposals in that time, including 36 that have not been decided.

Center director Tom Erickson says the increase is important because of a significant downturn in funding opportunities in the last several years. Erickson took over the helm in October.

The EERC has had about 1,300 clients in 52 countries in the last 30 years, mostly from the private sector.
