North Carolina Sea Grant hosted the 2014 Research Symposium: Investments and Opportunities in the spring.
The symposium highlighted excellence across our sponsored research and extension efforts. The event also facilitated stakeholder discussions to identify research, extension, applied science investment opportunities, and collaborative partnerships to effectively address North Carolina’s coastal needs now and into the future.
The outcomes and lessons learned from the symposium have been summarized into a white paper. To continue the momentum from this event, we are offering competitive funding for research proposals in the following categories focusing on North Carolina:
- Infrastructure in the coastal zone
- Long-term datasets
- Tidal creek systems
- Research to inform restoration
- Request for Proposals
- Symposium summary report
- Budget template
- Symposium materials
- North Carolina Sea Grant 2014-2017 Strategic Plan
Applications are due at 4 p.m., Aug. 28, 2014.
