In an effort to increase collaboration and effective use of federally funded ocean, coastal and Great Lakes research, the NSGO is looking for proposals to develop National Federal Partnership Liaison positions in coordination with other federal agencies or programs whose project goals align with and support national Sea Grant focus area or vision plan goals.
Funding of two to three liaisons is expected at up to $100,000 of Sea Grant federal dollars annually for four years. State match of 50 percent of NSGO funds and substantial federal partner funding are required.
