Relationship to Aspire 2020

CARD addresses one of the most important components of Aspire 2020, namely, improving OU’s engagement in areas of research where it traditionally has had less participation than possible, especially with respect to mission agencies. Success with CARD will have collateral impacts on OU’s research competitiveness as well, another Aspire 2020 objective. Finally, because CARD represents a mechanism for translating basic research outcomes into practicable capabilities, it will assist with OU’s goals of technology transfer and economic development.
