WSU Food-Energy-Water Seed Grants Awarded

In response to recent internal and external calls for Food-Energy-Water (FEW) research, CEREO in conjunction with the State of Washington Water Research Center (SWWRC) and the Center for Sustaining Agriculture & Natural Resources (CSANR) offered seed and planning grants to scientists with promising FEW research ideas. These grants provide a head start on upcoming calls for FEW research and a unique opportunity to collaborate across traditional home disciplines.

Funding for these seed and planning grants was co-sponsored by the Office of Research, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences, the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, the Center for Environmental Research, Education and Outreach, the State of Washington Water Research Center and the Center for Sustaining Agriculture & Natural Resources.

The three Centers are pleased to announce the following 2015 FEW Seed and Planning Grant recipients:

An Integrated Biophysical-Economic Study of a Model FEW System: Columbia River Reservoir Storage and Spill

Identifying Strategic Directions for Future FEW Research
