Input on Research Topics for the 2018 Request for Proposals

The North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) invites submissions of potential research topics to be included in the 2018 NPRB Request for Proposals (RFP). NPRB staff are currently developing research priorities to be reviewed by the Board this fall.

NPRB draws on research needs outlined in the 2005 Science Plan; assessments of completed, ongoing, and planned projects; new information presented in scientific conferences; and new findings published in scientific literature. NPRB also directly solicits research priorities from state and federal agencies, research institutions, and industry partners to jointly identify time-sensitive science, management, and monitoring needs and opportunities.

Proposals undergo four stages of review including independent peer review and review by the NPRB Science and Advisory Panels. The Board determines final funding recommendations to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce based on these reviews.

Submission deadline: 10 July 2017.
