Bringing U.S. EPA STAR (Science To Achieve Results) Grant Recipients to State, Federal and Tribal Environmental Programs in the Southeast

On Wednesday, September 10, 2003, twelve U.S. EPA Science to Achieve Results (STAR) grantees will present the results of their research to federal, state, and local government environmental and health professionals from the southeast. STAR funds cutting-edge environmental research projects nationwide, with many focusing on specific needs of the region. Out of the hundreds of possible choices, topics were chosen that are related to air quality, drinking water, asthma, and other important issues that are ongoing in the southeast. State and local government environmental professionals also have been invited, giving them a unique opportunity to learn about a variety of STAR research projects. The seminar is designed to educate and engage discussion between researchers and scientists from federal, state and tribal environmental programs on the latest state of the art in environmental research.
