Partners in Science: Regions
The ORD Regional Science Program links ORD's research program with EPA's regional offices. The program involves scientists from each EPA regional office as well as from headquarters. A lead region also is assigned.
The Regional Science Program focuses on four key activities:
- Plan and Conduct Regional Science Topic Workshops
- Manage the Regional Applied Research Effort (RARE) program, Regional Methods (RM) program, and Regional Research Partnership Program (RRPP)
- Support Regional Participation in ORD Research Planning
- Facilitate the Communication of ORD Science to the Regions
