Puerto Rico Space Partnership for Research Innovation and Training

PR-SPRInT aims to be spearheading in the development of training programs related to NASA’s goals.

We are PR-SPRInT

PR-SPRInT was born in 2019 from the need to forge professionals interested in aerospace and the basic sciences related to NASA missions. With this in mind, a group of Professors from different disciplines and led by Dr. Eduardo Nicolau, took on the task of devising a project in this direction. The project was designed with students in mind, and as such the program seeks to support them to persist in their academic degrees to eventually graduate. One of the peculiarities of this project is that it provides professional development opportunities, workshops in scientific entrepreneurship and in the development of prototypes and 3D printing. Participating students and professors have the unique opportunity to collaborate and carry out work in conjunction with NASA scientists. 

The project has the University of Puerto Rico-Río Piedras as the lead institution with other three participating institutions: University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez, University of Puerto Rico-Cayey and the
