2020-2022 Biennial Research Competition Executive Summary

The Oregon Sea Grant College Program invites preliminary proposals from researchers who are affiliated with any Oregon institution of higher education for research projects that address cutting-edge socioeconomic and biophysical science related to important marine and coastal issues. Oregon Sea Grant (OSG) supports the highest quality marine and coastal research characterized by strong societal relevance, so only the most creative and rigorously conceived proposals will receive consideration.

Each research project must include an outreach and engagement component designed to integrate potential information-users and stakeholders into the research process and ensure the research results will be useful and usable to these constituencies. In this competitive funding call we will continue to offer designated “office hours” opportunities to meet with OSG outreach and engagement professionals to help plan that component of the project. Projects will be selected through an open, competitive, peer-review process. Proposed work may begin on either February 1, 2020 or February 1, 2021. Available funding is set by the NOAA Sea Grant Program based on congressional appropriations.

Preliminary proposals are reviewed by external technical experts for scientific merit and innovation, by our citizen advisory council for societal relevance, and by OSG leadership for alignment with the goals and priorities set forth in our strategic plan and this Request for Proposals (RFP). Based on these evaluations, OSG will issue invitations for full proposals. Full proposals undergo independent external peer reviews as well as technical panel and citizen advisory panel reviews for scientific excellence, societal relevance, and applicable outreach and engagement. Please carefully read all guidelines as items in the request for preliminary proposals have changed for the 2020-2022 biennium.
