|Purpose:||The Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was one of the worst man-made environmental disasters our country has ever experienced. The oil spill has impacted the lives, jobs, and futures of millions of Gulf Coast residents and endangered the habitats and ecosystems of one of our nation's most valuable resources. Responding to this unprecedented disaster has revealed numerous research needs in the areas of oil spill response, remediation, and restoration. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and British Petroleum (BP) will each separately be soliciting grant applications in the future from eligible organizations, including colleges and universities located in the Gulf Coast region, to conduct much needed research to address the many gaps that have become apparent in dealing with this unprecedented disaster.
EPA is sponsoring this workshop to bring together staff from EPA, NSF, and BP to discuss research needs and priorities, the general competition process, and their expected timelines for soliciting grant applications.
In addition to describing oil spill-related research needs, the workshop will include presentations on the grant competition process and the timelines for soliciting applications and awarding the grants. The afternoon session will be devoted to responding to your questions and discussing topics of interest to potential applicants.
