WHAT IS CORE SC?

CORE SC provides connections to resources and professional services to organizations and institutions who are developing solutions to a host of resilience issues throughout the State. CORE SC recognizes the State’s vulnerable communities and landscape. To that end, CORE SC focuses on implementing resilience best practices, feasible and deployable research and development, and economic development through innovative business strategies.

Of particular significance, CORE SC continues its work establishing a lasting relationship with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) through partnership programs, events, and outreach efforts that will ultimately result in hosting a permanent NASA facility in South Carolina. CORE SC’s unique structure is designed to be replicated throughout the country, lining up with NASA’s goal of working across multi- jurisdictional lines.
