Oregon Sea Grant announces a new research funding opportunity for 2018: our 2018-2020 Biennial Research Competition. This call invites preliminary proposals from researchers who are affiliated with any Oregon institution of higher education for two-year research projects that address cutting-edge socioeconomic and biophysical science related to important marine and coastal issues. Pre-proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. PST on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

This competition will identify projects that are both scientifically excellent and societally relevant. We are committed to projects that inform and engage communities, toward ensuring that vital research results are informed by and shared with those who need it most and in ways that are timely, relevant and meaningful.
