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.

With coastal sandy beaches, inland rivers and lakes, moody swamps, dense forests, and the Piedmont’s rolling hills, South Carolina is home to varied landscapes and resources. She has a deep bench with a robust technology industry, state-of-the-art manufacturing, productive agriculture, and diverse people with well-established roots and rich experiences. These features make South Carolina a desirable place to call home.

What makes South Carolina unique can also make it vulnerable. With several named weather events in recent years causing devastating hurricanes and flooding, coupled with unprecedented population growth and land development, there has never been a greater need for establishing best practices for statewide resilience and sustainability. That’s where CORE SC comes in.
