The conference will be held from September 27 to October 01, 2015, in Pushchino, Russia. Registration fee is 50 euro, the banquet ticket is about 30 euros. Students and Ph.D. students are welcome to participate without registration fee.
Actualization of agenda and elaboration of practical measures for effective collaboration between public authorities, business, science and communities within economic projects and implementation of innovative macro-regional development models are stated as goals for the international scientific conference: Natural Resources and Integrated Coastal Areas Development in the Arctic Zone, which is to be held on 29 September – 01 October, 2015 in Arkhangelsk, Russia.
Long Range Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Navy and Marine Corps Science and Technology
The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is interested in receiving proposals for Long-Range Science and Technology (S&T) Projects which offer potential for advancement and improvement of Navy and Marine Corps operations. Readers should note that this is an announcement to declare ONR’s broad role in competitive funding of meritorious research across a spectrum of science and engineering disciplines.
The purpose of this notice is to request applications for special projects and programs associated with NOAA's strategic plan and mission goals, as well as to provide the general public with information and guidelines on how NOAA will select proposals and administer discretionary Federal assistance under this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA). This BAA is a mechanism to encourage research, education and outreach, innovative projects, or sponsorships that are not addressed through our competitive discretionary programs.
The Institute of the North works on an array of critical issues in the Arctic, focused on the region's economic prosperity and resilient communities. Our legacy work has addressed Arctic infrastructure development – including energy, aviation, telecommunications, and marine shipping. Much of that work is based on establishing and sustaining cross-border relationships.
