With PREM support, UPRH has improved the infrastructure for Materials Research and Education with the acquisition of new instrumentation. Facilities enhanced with PREM support include three laboratories for materials preparation and characterization (two with 625 square feet each and one with 372 square feet), a computational mathematics research laboratory (450 square feet) and a Videoconference Room (576 square feet). Facilities are shared with the rest of UPRH community, other universities and industry. Research laboratories are also used for teaching and for outreach activities.
On September 12, 2016 UPRH's Administrative Board approved Certification 2013-2014-10 (in Spanish) authorizing PREM to charge fees for using the instruments and for technical support.
