FEWS Research Network
Update time: 2018-01-19
Text Size: A A A

A recent award from the US National Science Foundation to faculty and scientists at the University of Tennessee (UT) and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) will support the development of a Research Coordination Network (RCN), designed to identify transdisciplinary research opportunities for scientists in the US and China focusing on the nexus of food, energy and water systems (FEWS). This grant, termed “Food-Energy-Water Systems Transdisciplinary Environmental Research Network (FEWSTERN),” will partner with three NSF-China awards to three teams of Chinese institutions, led by Nanjing University, South China University of Science and Technology, and Remin University of China, respectively, to develop research priorities transcending US and Chinese grand challenges.

The effort will be directed by Frank Löffler, a UT-ORNL Governor's Chair Professor for UT's Departments of Microbiology and Civil and Environmental Engineering and ORNL's Biosciences Division with an adjunct appointment in the UTIA Department of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science.
