MIT Sea Grant provides competitive funding opportunities through our core RFP for Massachusetts university-based research scientists who seek to address marine issues in ways that benefit the Commonwealth.
Please join us for a progress update on the active research projects currently funded by MIT Sea Grant focusing on aquaculture and ocean acidification. Each principal investigator will present for 10 minutes with a brief Q&A session, followed by a discussion period after all presentations.
