The Upper Oconee Watershed Network (UOWN) and its partners are now accepting abstract submissions for the second Upper Oconee Science and Policy Summit.

The summit will bring together scientists, policymakers, activists, students, managers, and community members from across the region to explore the intersection between water resource science, management, and policy in the Upper Oconee Watershed. Oral and poster presentations will:

● Educate attendees on the water resource activities occurring in the watershed
● Highlight the integral connection between science and policies and management
● Identify research and policy needs as well as opportunities for collaboration and action in the watershed
● Introduce decision makers and managers in the watershed to some of the brightest student researchers at UGA

Aquatic research programs can yield valuable knowledge to inform policies and management decisions. Frequently, much is lost in the translation between scientific research and policy development. The summit seeks to address this challenge by: (1) highlighting effective ways in which science can inform policy development, (2) foster a collaborative environment where scientists, policy professionals, and community members can share needs and interests, and (3) identify gaps in research that are needed to support effective watershed management. Oral presentations will be limited to 5-7 minutes (depending on number of presenters) to encourage more time for questions and interactions.
