Grantee Research Project Results
|Title:||U.S. EPA Collaborative Science and Technology Network for Sustainability - CNS - Progress Review Workshop|
|Date:||Tuesday, October 18 - Wednesday, October 19, 2005|
|Location:||Holiday Inn Rosslyn @ Key Bridge
1900 N. Fort Myer Drive
Arlington, VA 22209
|Purpose:||EPA's National Center for Environmental Research (NCER)
is sponsoring the first grantees meeting to discuss the new grants
program called the Collaborative Science and Technology Network
for Sustainability (CNS). As most of the grantees have just started
their projects, one purpose of the meeting is to introduce their
work to each other, to EPA, and to all interested stakeholders.
The other purpose of the meeting is to present and discuss EPA information
and resources that can support CNS and similar projects. More detailed
meetings on the individual projects will be held on the second day.
CNS is a cornerstone of EPA’s Office of Research and Development transition to sustainability. The CNS program enables grantees and EPA to collaborate in exploring and learning about new approaches to environmental protection that are systems oriented, forward looking, preventive, and collaborative. CNS addresses long-term sustainability in terms of quality, availability, and viability of resources, including energy, materials and ecosystems. CNS will be a testing ground for scientifically based tools and approaches that could enable a sustainable future at a regional scale.
Please mark your calendars for this very exciting meeting!
