PULLMAN, Wash. – Research that links food, energy and water (FEW) issues is expected to be a top priority for funding agencies in coming years. In preparation, a one-day workshop for Washington State University faculty to identify research initiatives will be held Wednesday, May 13, in CUB 204 and 206.
This will be a free, interdisciplinary opportunity to identify areas where WSU environmental researchers can collaborate to have the greatest impact on FEW issues. In the weeks following, WSU leaders will fund promising research through internal seed or planning grants to help these projects get a head start on calls for FEW research proposals.
The workshop will be sponsored by WSU’s Center for Environmental Research, Education and Outreach and Center for Sustaining Agriculture & Natural Resources, as well as the Washington Water Research Center.
