emerging technologies, innovative and advanced manufacturing,
technology transfer, environmental remediation, and
sustainability in the use of energy and water resources. Usually

donors so that grants to organizations for which it was an
initial funder have been leveraged by an additional $44 million
in follow-on funding in addition to capital investments.
