CICEET Releases FY 2008 Funding Opportunities

July 25, 2007

The UNH/NOAA Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET) invites proposals to its FY 2008 funding opportunity programs. Through these programs, CICEET makes strategic investments in the development, demonstration, and application of tools to detect, prevent, and reverse the impacts of coastal pollution and habitat degradation to coastal ecosystems and communities.

1) CICEET’s Mitigating Shoreline Erosion along Sheltered Coasts Funding Opportunity seeks to provide a better understanding of how to use different erosion prevention measures to protect sheltered coastlines from the impacts of rising sea levels and waves generated by extreme weather, as well as to protect, preserve, and restore ecosystem function.

2) CICEET’s Environmental Technology Development and Demonstration Funding Opportunity has two goals, developed in support of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s five-year strategic plan for research.

• Develop and/or demonstrate technology to detect and quantify the impacts of human activity on coastal water quality, species, and habitats.

• Develop and/or demonstrate technology to protect coastal water quality and/or restore coastal habitats.

Both funding opportunities reflect CICEET’s approach to request for proposal development, one that incorporates an analysis of the technical and non-technical factors that influence coastal management problems, and mandates the active participation of intended end users in technology development and demonstration.

On Tuesday, July 31, at 3 pm, CICEET will host an information session on these funding opportunities for the local research and coastal management communities. The session will be held in the Piscataqua Room of Holloway Commons. Refreshments will be served.
