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
• Develop and/or demonstrate technology to detect and quantify
the impacts of human activity on coastal water quality, species, and
• 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. Learn more on CICEET’s web site:
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.
