UFERN Project Group Interest
Current goals of each project group are listed. The Network meeting will be used to work towards these goals, and to build on these projects to organize new project groups. Please keep in mind that as a Research Coordination Network, our efforts need to build upon, support, or expand existing efforts or consist of small, pilot projects that can facilitate submission of proposals for bigger efforts. If you have an existing effort that aligns with UFERN and that the network can build upon, there is also space below to suggest it for a new collaborative project group. Please reach out to Kari O’Connell (kari.oconnell@oregonstate.edu) or Kelly Hoke (kelly.hoke@oregonstate.edu ) if you have any questions.
