Research Symposium

The NH Sea Grant Research Symposium will showcase recently-funded NH Sea Grant research projects and provide a forum to discuss best practices in translating cross-disciplinary science to action through integrated research, education and engagement. Symposium participants learn how successful NH Sea Grant research projects strive to address the core tenants of Sea Grant's work to be responsive, relevant, integrated, and engaged.

It is our goal for the symposium to help strengthen the sense of community and integration among current NH Sea Grant researchers, extension and education staff, students, project partners, and stakeholders, as well as to engage with potential new investigators and collaborators.

Poster Session

After the research symposium, NH Sea Grant will hold a poster session for coastal research related to our focus areas and priorities. Graduate and undergraduate students are welcomed to attend.

Students are welcomed (and encouraged) to submit posters to the session. In the event that we receive more poster registrations than we have space for, priority will be given to students who are supported by NH Sea Grant funds or who are working closely with a NH Sea Grant funded project.

2024-2025 RFP

As part of the Symposium, NH Sea Grant will host an information session about the upcoming RFP. Join us for this portion of the Symposium to learn about our latest Request for Proposals (RFP) and how you can join our growing research community.
