Eye On Boise

Setting rivalry aside - temporarily

Boise State University and the University of Idaho will meet on the football field this Saturday amid all the usual rivalry, but a day earlier, the presidents of the two universities say they’ll set rivalry aside to talk research. UI President Duane Nellis and BSU President Bob Kustra are scheduled to meet with faculty researchers on Friday for discussion and lunch, joined by state Board of Education members, focusing on collaborative research work between the schools on water and energy issues. Those collaborative efforts include work by the Center for Advance Energy Studies, the Idaho Network for Biomedical Research Excellence, the Idaho Water Resources Research Institute and the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research in Idaho, according to the schools.

The research discussion will take place at the Stueckle Sky Center, which, of course, is at Bronco Stadium - the same place the two schools will clash on the field a day later.
