Guam EPSCoR Plan - The Guam Ecosystems Collaboratorium

The University of Guam (UOG) received a $6M grant from the National Science Foundation – Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) grant (NSF 14-558). The 5-year grant is focused upon studying the effects of climate change on coral reefs specifically on a genetic basis.

This plan describes research and development priorities and goals for the territory. This strategic plan will serve as a “living document” to guide and direct effort, and the use of human, physical and financial resources, towards achieving the goals and objectives of areas of scientific interest that have been identified as “EPSCoR critical” for the Territory of Guam.
