Now Accepting Submissions for Applied Research and Coastal Innovation Programs

For the third year, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA), in collaboration with The Water Institute of the Gulf, is offering two programs focused on fostering applied research and identifying innovations that will enable CPRA to more effectively protect and restore coastal Louisiana.

The CPRA Applied Research Program provides Louisiana-based researchers with funds to conduct engineering and science research and tool development activities that will enable CPRA to more effectively protect and restore coastal resources. Get complete details online.

The Coastal Innovation Partnership Program solicits and evaluates cutting-edge technologies and other innovations that could be used by CPRA or other coastal entities to achieve the most efficient, cost effective and sustainable approaches to project implementation, monitoring and adaptive management.
