New grant establishes Rhode Island C-AIM
The National Science Foundation has awarded the University of Rhode Island a $19 million grant to establish a statewide research consortium — the RI Consortium for Coastal Ecology Assessment, Innovation, and Modeling (RI C-AIM) — to study the effects of climate variability on coastal ecosystems.
The funding builds on more than $30 million of previous NSF funding through its Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), which aims to strengthen the state’s research competitiveness and fund workforce development initiatives. Follow this link to learn more about the grant. This website will be updated shortly.
Developed by incisive planning and a deep commitment to boosting capabilities, shared research facilities offer access to the Rhode Island EPSCoR community, add to the body of knowledge, and make discovery in the Ocean State possible.
The Current newsmagazine takes a comprehensive look at the people, projects and programs of Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR. Read about the innovative research, training, education and outreach at our partner institutions across the Ocean State.
From the sediment of the ocean’s floor to the water’s surface, Rhode Island researchers explore the impact of climate change on marine life and ecosystems so that we can maintain precious resources and better prepare for what the future holds.
