SEANET Research Mini-Grant RFP 2017

The SEANET program invites proposals for research projects that create industry/academic partnerships and contribute to the performance metrics of the SEANET/EPSCoR program and the National Science Foundation. The proposals may either be submitted by a PI from an academic or other research institution in collaboration with an industry or regulatory partner or vice versa. It is expected that the collaborators will work together to identify a research problem driven by policy or industry needs. Priority will be given to projects that address topics in sea vegetable aquaculture such as: processing, food safety, grow out strategies, ecosystem services or value added products. Other aquaculture related research will be considered. Applicants should discuss their idea with the SEANET Research Director, Paul Anderson, or the Research Coordinator, Meggan Dwyer.  Click here for more information and to apply.
