Abstract/ Summary

As the Sustainable Ecological Aquaculture Network (SEANET) completes its final year, several other National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded grants and activities throughout the state have continued a legacy of positively impacting the state’s capacity for research, development, and STEM education.

Maine EPSCoR’s newest Track-1 grant, Molecule to Ecosystem: Environmental DNA as a Nexus of Coastal Ecosystem Sustainability for Maine (or Maine-eDNA), is no exception. It has had a strong start, and we aim to continue strengthening collaborations among partner institutions, while conducting highly impactful research, education, and outreach of benefit to Maine.

In this newsletter, you’ll learn more about:
• The effects SEANET has had, and will continue to have on the state, through its transition to the Aquaculture Research Institute.
• Some of the education and workforce development initiatives that continue to advance STEM education.
• The historical impact of Maine EPSCoR research and collaborations on the state of Maine and how Maine-eDNA aims to continue this trend.
