Thursday, August 20, 2020. 11:00 AM. Webinar: Funding Opportunity: Planning for Actionable Science in the Gulf of Mexico. Julien Lartigue, NOAA RESTORE Science Program. Sponsored by NOAA RESTORE Science Program and NOAA's National Ocean Service Science Seminar Series. More information here.
The NOAA RESTORE Science Program invites you to join a webinar on our current funding opportunity which will support teams of managers, researchers, and other stakeholders to plan a research project that informs a specific management decision impacting natural resources in the Gulf of Mexico. This funding opportunity lays the foundation for the co-production of actionable science in two ways. One way is by focusing on the creation of partnerships between natural resource managers and researchers. The second way is by providing those partnerships with funding to jointly scope and design a research project that informs a future natural resource management decision. NOAA is making approximately $2.5 million available through this competition to fund approximately 20 projects for 12 months each. As these planning projects
conclude, the Science Program plans to release a second competition for funding to execute and apply actionable science in the Gulf of Mexico. Each webinar is expected to last approximately 30 minutes, and will begin with a 12-minute overview of the funding competition followed by questions from participants. A recording of the webinar will be placed here on the Science Program's website by September 1. After the competition is publicly released on August 11, an overview of the competition along with frequently asked questions can be found on the Science Program's website.
