GLIN==> Development Projects Funding Oppty


Announcement of Funding Opportunity
Development Projects

November 20, 2001

The NOAA/UNH Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine
Environmental Technology (CICEET), located at the University of New
Hampshire, is inviting applications for "proof of concept" projects.
Projects submitted to this competition should be short-duration, low
cost development projects.  The purpose of this component of the CICEET
program is to "seed" the development of an innovative technology for
which there is currently little or no data to determine feasibility and
therefore represents a high risk for full project funding.  Development
projects will provide an opportunity to establish a "proof of concept"
before moving on to a multi-year, more resource intensive project.

Projects under this year's request for Development Project proposals must
address one of the following coastal management issues and include one or
more of the activities listed under each issue. 

1) Microbial contaminants 
2) Toxic contaminants 
3) Nutrient Enrichment and Eutrophication 
4) Habitat degradation/loss and habitat restoration 
5) Synthesis, integration and transfer of environmental data and information
pertinent to coastal management issues 1, 2, 3 and 4 above 

Development project proposals must be received by CICEET on or before
December 21, 2001.  The RFP can be accessed electronically by logging on
to the CICEET website (http//ciceet.unh.edu) and selecting the link for
"Funding Opportunities" on the left hand menu bar, and selecting
"Development Projects" from the listed.

CICEET was established in 1997 as a national center for the development
and application of innovative environmental technologies for monitoring,
management, and prevention of contamination in estuaries and coastal
waters.  It is a unique partnership between the University of New
Hampshire (UNH) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA), and promotes collaboration among academia, government, and the
private sector.  CICEET is governed by a Memorandum of Understanding
(MOU) between NOAA and the University of New Hampshire and is jointly
managed by UNH and NOAA Co-Directors.  CICEET uses the capabilities of
the University as well as those of the Great Bay National Estuarine
Research Reserve and the other 24 Reserves in the National Estuarine
Research Reserve System to develop and apply new environmental
technologies and techniques.
