EPA/NSF Star Partnership for Environmental Research 1998 Decision-Making and Valuation for Environmental Policy

Government agencies responsible for policy analysis, regulatory decision-making, priority-setting for environmental actions, and assessment have an interest in advancing research to help develop practical, systematic and credible approaches to identifying economic, environmental and social interactions, estimating their benefits and cost, and improving decision-making about environment issues. This competition is intended to support research projects in: (1) Valuing human health and environmental quality and economic growth, and (2) Innovations and improvement in environmental decision-making. Deadline: Jan. 15. For additional information, contact Paul Cunningham, 936-1289, or Web address:

1998 Centers for Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research

The National Institute of Environmental Health Science and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency invite grant applications for centers that will develop multidisciplinary basic and applied research in combination with community-based prevention research projects to support studies on the causes and mechanisms of children's disorders having an environmental etiology, identify relevant environmental exposures, intervene to reduce hazardous exposures and their adverse health effects, and eventually decrease the prevalence, morbidity and mortality of environmentally related childhood diseases. Each application is to be designed around a central scientific theme, examining the role of environmental agents in one of the following research foci: (1) children's respiratory disease; (2) childhood learning; or (3) growth and development. A minimum of two basic biomedical research projects and one community-based intervention research component must be proposed within each center. Deadline: Jan. 21.
