sea starThe people and projects of Rhode Island EPSCoR

Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR supports marine life science research and the people who do that research. The program’s research facilities and training opportunities provide an invaluable resource for the Rhode Island scientific community and create a platform for collaboration by individuals from a variety of disciplines. With the participation of the nine RI NSF EPSCoR institutions, multiple avenues exist for collaboration, exploration and discovery.


Our community of scholars works together to answer the question — What is the response of marine life to climate variability? — and study three specific research questions about adaptation, food webs, and pathogens.


EXPspace (pron. E-X-P-space) is a research platform hosted by RISD to connect artists, designers, and scientists to shared research interests, ongoing work, and collaboration opportunities.


The Rhode Island Science & Technology Advisory Council (STAC) supports projects that directly address the RI NSF EPSCoR question: What is the effect of climate change on marine plant and animal life in Narragansett Bay?


The work of Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR researchers draws attention from a broad audience, from scientific journals to the mainstream media outlets, as they push the boundaries of exploration and collaboration.


The Rhode Island NSF EPSCOR network includes scientists from around the state with a wide variety of interests and projects. Researchers can find collaborators from the EPSCoR community and pursue mutual research interests.


RI NSF EPSCoR partners with the Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental Reporting to promote science communication and improve the public’s understanding of marine life science and climate change.
