New National Science Foundation Initiative: Coastlines and People

July 31, 2018
By Jessica Rohde

You are encouraged to apply to attend scoping sessions to identify priorities for a research initiative focused on coastal regions. Applications are due by August 12, 2018 (11:59pm local time) and the workshops will be held September 26-28, 2018. More information is available on the CoPe scoping session website https://coastlinesandpeople.org/.

Coasts are paramount to our nation’s economic prosperity, sustainability and national security. The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate of Geosciences in collaboration with the Directorates for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences, Engineering, Education and Human Resources, and Biological Sciences are looking to better understand the research priorities related to advancing understanding of the impacts of coastal environmental variability and natural hazards on populated coastal regions. The outcomes from these scoping sessions will inform future research opportunities from NSF to expand and innovate coastal research and include state, federal and local stakeholders. Interdisciplinary research on coastal processes, the built environment, and the people that inhabit coastal regions, serves as an opportunity to engage under-represented groups and build on broadening participation efforts of NSFINCLUDES.

Four, simultaneous, three-day scoping sessions will be hosted by the University Cooperation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR )and facilitated by KnowInnovation on behalf of the National Science Foundation (NSF). Workshop sites include San Diego, California, Chicago, Illinois, and Atlanta, Georgia with a fourth ‘virtual’ workshop held on mountain time.

Applicants will be notified by late August. Travel support will be provided for participants invited to attend. More information and answers to frequently asked questions can be found on the CoPe scoping workshop website https://coastlinesandpeople.org.
