National Science Foundation awards Mag Lab $184 million, solidifying its operations at FSU


    The National MagLab’s future at Florida State University has been solidified with the National Science Foundation’s award of $184 million over the next five years.

    The latest award brings total NSF funding to $867 million and represents a nearly 10-percent increase in funding over the previous five-year period, FSU said Monday morning.

     “This announcement comes as a strong endorsement for the importance of high magnetic field research in America’s science portfolio,” said Greg Boebinger, National MagLab director.  “The true strength of the MagLab comes from the scientific impact of our users from across the nation, users who access these magnets to make discoveries of new materials, find energy solutions and explore the science that illuminates life itself.”
