WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University says its researchers obtained $389 million in outside funding in the past year.
That's almost a 22 percent increase from the previous year and just short of a record amount for Purdue.
Many of the grants from federal, state and foreign governments, although university vice president Suresh Garimella says $98 million came from industries and foundations during the fiscal year that ended June 30.
Purdue researchers received about 4,100 grants in that time.
Those included $1.5 million from the National Science Foundation to help mass produce a new type of nanomaterial for advanced sensors and batteries and $5 million over five years from the U.S. Agency for International Development to help countries in sub-Saharan Africa reduce food waste and improve the processing and marketing of key crops.
