Over its 30-year duration, the Gulf Research Program works to enhance oil system safety and the protection of human health and the environment in the Gulf of Mexico and other U.S. outer continental shelf areas by seeking to improve understanding of the region’s interconnecting human, environmental, and energy systems and fostering application of these insights to benefit Gulf communities, ecosystems, and the Nation.
The Gulf Research Program and National Academies Keck Futures Initiative (NAKFI) Award $1.55M in Interdisciplinary Seed Grants
The grants allow investigators to recruit students and postdocs to the research effort, purchase new equipment, acquire preliminary data, develop prototypes of exhibits, or create new collaborative teams and modes of inquiry—all of which can position these projects to compete for larger awards from other public and private sources.
The Gulf Research Program is pleased to support these talented, interdisciplinary teams as part of its work to build the scientific capacity needed to address large-scale challenges at the intersection of offshore energy production, the environment, and the people who depend on both.
