Is there a process for non-member Universities within the NE footprint to join the consortium?
Michelle Staudinger
17:11
@Brent - our consortium is competed through a cooperative grant every 5-7 years.
Richard Palmer
17:58
Katherine just covered this in her comments. In short, a non-consortium university would need to team with a consortium university.

What if our project spans CASCs? In my case, project would be mostly in the Midwest but also including a NE CASC state. Do we submit two proposals?

Is it possible to propose a project that involves two consortium member universities?
John Young (USGS)
33:18
Could you clarify, if a project fits the cross cut theme, does it also have to fit one of the other 4 priorities?
Addie Rose Holland

Got it, thanks
Richard Palmer

As someone who has used RFP Manager as an applicant, I would simply say it is, in fact, easy to use.
Maya Groner

Can you clarify the extent that marine projects would be considered? For example a project in the gulf of Maine?
brent.murry@mail.wvu.edu
39:02
Is it important to have a clear DOI partner, e.g. FWS related to implementation? Who are other typical "use" partners? state agencies?
Maya Groner

Thanks

Regarding the invasive species priority area - did I hear correctly that projects could also involve studies on shifting distributions of native species that are at risk from invasive (i.e., forest trees)?

Matt Fitzpatrick

Woods Hole Research Center is on the map with partner institutions, but is not listed as a partner on your website. Are they currently in the CASC consortium?
Addie Rose Holland
46:41
They recently changed their name to Woodwell Climate Research Center, and yes - they are still a partner in the consortium.
Maya Groner

Great. Thanks!
