WRRI Pre-proposal Deadline
July 29 @ 4:00 pm
With funding from the U.S. Geological Survey’s 104b program, the Maine Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) in the Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions supports research and outreach to enhance the capacity for the sustainable management of water resources across the state. We request proposals for solutions-driven projects in which interdisciplinary research teams collaborate closely with stakeholders and provide support for student training.
Pre-Proposals are due Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at 4 PM
Pre-proposals must be related to freshwater resources, and focus on developing strong stakeholder partnerships and interdisciplinary collaboration that accelerate progress in understanding and solving sustainability problems via one or more of the following strategies:
- Identifying and overcoming key barriers in connecting scientific knowledge with societal actions to promote effective water resource management;
- Building upon past research to increase the delivery of decision-support systems and other tools that facilitate real-world problem-solving;
- Tackling sustainability problems that are highly relevant to place-based problems in Maine;
- Pursuing other research strategies to understand and solve sustainability problems in water resources.
All proposals must align with the WRRI’s program objectives and the Mitchell Center’s mission, vision, and approach, and demonstrate significant promise for securing external funding.
