Giving Presentations

Do you have research and/or a real-world solution that you would like to share with a wide audience? North Carolina Sea Grant is now accepting proposals for presentations, posters, and lightning talks.

Abstracts — short presentation or poster descriptions of 250 words or less — must be submitted online by Friday, Sept. 2 at 5 p.m. via the portal at eseagrant.ncseagrant.ncsu.edu. There is also an option for alternative formats, such as an organized panel on a specific topic.

“Students are especially invited to participate to share their research,” says John Fear, North Carolina Sea Grant’s deputy director.

Participants from the conference in 2019 suggested they would want to learn more about community perspectives, social sciences, marine renewable energy, civic engagement, stormwater, hazard communication, public health, and fisheries — and we’re open to other topics, too.
