FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota program has awarded more than $1.2 million for research projects for public and private partners.

The North Dakota Centers of Excellence Commission provides matching funds to help companies pay for university research. Proposals for projects are submitted jointly by representatives from one of the state’s two research universities and a private sector partner.

The largest grant is $300,000 to the University of North Dakota atmospheric sciences department, which is partnering with Rosemount Aerospace, Inc. to refine newly developed instruments that detect high ice concentrations on commercial aircraft.

The program is funding eight other projects, including four from UND and four from North Dakota State University.
