New Community Collaborative Projects Support Youth Education, Tribal Knowledge, Air and Water Quality, and More
Four new projects in North Carolina are launching this year as part of the Community Collaborative Research Grant Program. Projects will support youth education, tribal knowledge, air and water quality, and an exploration of plastic contaminants in headwaters.
Five North Carolina graduate students recently began new coastal and water resource fellowships. North Carolina Sea Grant and the North Carolina Water Resources Research Institute are supporting four students’ research projects, and the state’s Urban Water Consortium is funding a fifth.
Research teams across the state recently have begun work on North Carolina Sea Grant’s new core projects. Scientists are applying innovative approaches to coastal resilience, climate change, flooding, disaster recovery, sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, environmental literacy, and more.
North Carolina agencies, businesses and community partners interested in extending coastal research into applications are invited to submit topics to North Carolina Sea Grant to be considered for proposals to a new program funded by national Sea Grant and the U.S. Coastal Research Program (USCRP). Letters of Intent must be filed by NC Sea Grant by June 15.
North Carolina Sea Grant is now accepting proposals for presentations, posters and lightning talks for the event on Nov. 7 and 8 at the McKimmon Center at NC State University in Raleigh.
