Wisconsin Groundwater Research and Monitoring Program proposals due Nov. 1, 2019

This message is from James Hurley, Director of the Water Resources Institute:

We are pleased to announce the State of Wisconsin Joint Solicitation for Groundwater Research and Monitoring for Wisconsin Fiscal Year 2021. Complete instructions for proposal submission are now available on the WRI Joint Solicitation website. The goal of this solicitation is to identify and support scientific research that will answer key scientific questions and will advance our understanding and management of groundwater in Wisconsin.

The solicitation is a coordinated effort of the University of Wisconsin System, the Wisconsin Departments of Natural Resources; Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, and Safety and Professional Services. This cooperative solicitation allows interested individuals to prepare project proposals that can be submitted to several different funding sources simultaneously and eliminates the need to submit similar proposals several times for different solicitation efforts. It is our intent that this joint solicitation will make it easier for interested researchers to prepare proposals, promote coordination among state organizations and researchers, and enhance the ability of state agencies and the UW System to meet their objectives.

Funding is available for new research or monitoring to meet specific state program needs and objectives. Up to $350,000 will be available for new groundwater projects in Fiscal Year 2021.

You are invited to review the enclosed materials and decide if you wish to submit a proposal. The deadline for submittals is 3 p.m. CDT Friday, November 1, 2019. Investigators are required to submit proposals using eDrop, a Web-based proposal submission system that is now open for registration. Please visit the WRI Joint Solicitation web page for more information.
