Best Practices for NHSG Researchers
New Hampshire Sea Grant (NHSG) is dedicated to maintaining a position of non-advocacy. We strive to serve as a neutral, honest broker of science-based information. NHSG-funded researchers and students are viewed as part of the Sea Grant family, serving as ambassadors of the NHSG mission. To that end, we ask that you maintain objectivity when communicating about your NHSG-funded research in presentations, on social media, and when speaking to the media.
Biennial NHSG Research Symposium
NHSG-funded researchers will be asked to participate in our biennial Research Symposium to present their project objectives, data, and results where applicable. This symposium is designed to showcase recently funded NHSG projects and provide a forum to discuss best practices in translating cross-disciplinary science to action through integrated research, education and engagement. Our goal for this symposium is to help strengthen the sense of community and integration among current Sea Grant researchers, extension and education staff, students, project partners and stakeholders as well as engage with potential new investigators and partners. In addition to the biennial Research Symposium, there may be other opportunities where NHSG-funded researchers will be encouraged to present their work and where you can present your research.
The following information offers additional guidance and support to assist you with communications, outreach, and annual reporting during and after your research funding time frame.
