The Woods Hole Sea Grant Program thanks all those who submitted pre-proposals for research projects during the 2014-2016 omnibus cycle. We received nearly 60 requests across a wide, and fascinating, spectrum of topics. The pre-proposals are currently under review. For further information, including a calendar with the next steps in the process, click here.
The Northeast Sea Grant Consortium was pleased to accept more than 30 responses to its recent call for social science research proposals for projects having relevence to the Gulf of Maine and Greater New York Bight regions (from the Canadian Border to Cape May, NJ). The proposals are now under review and more details will be released as the process moves forward. For more information on the overall call, please see the RFP.
The Woods Hole Sea Grant program, based at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), supports research, education, and extension projects that encourage environmental stewardship, long-term economic development, and responsible use of the nation’s coastal and ocean resources. It is part of the National Sea Grant College Program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a network of 33 individual programs located in each of the coastal and Great Lakes states. Together, these programs form a national network of over 300 participating institutions involving more than 3,000 scientists, engineers, educators, students, and outreach experts.
Sea Grant’s legislative charge is to “increase the understanding, assessment, development, utilization, and conservation of the nation’s ocean and coastal resources by providing assistance to promote a strong educational base, responsive research and training activities, and broad and prompt dissemination of knowledge and techniques.”Locally, Sea Grant’s affiliation with WHOI began in 1971 with support for a number of individual research projects. In 1973, WHOI was designated a Coherent Sea Grant Program and, in 1985, was elevated to its current status as an Institutional Sea Grant Program. The Woods Hole Sea Grant Program has made great strides to channel the expertise of world-renowned ocean scientists toward meeting the research and information needs of users of the marine environment. Public and private institutions throughout Massachusetts, and the northeast region, participate in the Woods Hole Sea Grant Program.
