Stevens to lead port security research
Stevens Tech to lead research into port security
Hoboken is poised to become a center for research into port security.
Stevens Institute of Technology was selected by the Department of Homeland Security as one of its centers of excellence that will receive grants up to $2 million per year for the next four to six years.
The Hoboken-based school will lead a research effort that will also include Rutgers, MIT, the University of Miami, Monmouth University and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez and Reps. Albio Sires, Steven Rothman and Bill Pascrell Jr. are scheduled to announce the Stevens Tech grant this morning in Hoboken.
New Jersey’s congressional delegation has pushed for creating minimum security standards for all shipping containers entering the nation’s seaports.
