NSF will hold an informational webinar on October 27, 2020, starting at 2:30 PM Eastern to discuss the Sustainable Regional Systems Research Networks (SRS RNs) solicitation and answer questions.
The United States is made up of regional systems comprising interdependent urban and rural systems and every community category between urban and rural.
Urban systems are dependent on rural systems for the provisioning of food, energy, water, and other materials and natural resources, while rural systems are dependent on urban systems for markets, manufactured goods, and medical resources. These systems are also connected by ecological processes that both influence and are influenced by human behavior.
The vital interconnection of urban-rural systems underscores the critical need for the advancement of sustainable regional systems (SRS).
The goal of the NSF SRS RNs solicitation is to fund convergent research and education that will advance sustainable regional systems science, engineering, and education to facilitate the transformation of current regional systems to enhance sustainability.
