Research Approach

In previous years, Michigan Sea Grant has supported research projects that follow an Integrated Assessment approach. The goals of Integrated Assessments are to:

  • Clarify a complicated environmental issue, including the history, causes and consequences
  • Foster collaboration and build consensus
  • Identify and evaluate options for solving the problem
  • Develop information and tools that help guide decisions

Researchers from any accredited university in the state of Michigan are eligible to apply as a principal investigator. However, project teams are not limited to university researchers or Michigan residents.
