The Seventh Biennial NOAA EPP Education and Science Forum was held from October 26–29, 2014, on the beautiful campus of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, lead institution of the Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center (LMRCSC). Nearly 400 participants shared education and research results and heard from senior academic and policy officials on topics related to NOAA's core mission goals of Climate Adaptation and Mitigation, Weather Ready Nation, Healthy Oceans, and Resilient Coastal Communities and Economies. Participants included students, alumni, faculty and staff from university partners of the four NOAA EPP Cooperative Science Centers located across the country. NOAA leadership and Maryland state and local representatives addressed the participants during two plenary sessions. 

"Developing a Premier Future STEM Workforce to Support Environmental Sustainability" was the Forum’s theme which also aligns with the Administration's goal of expanding academic training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics STEM disciplines for all Americans. Read more about the 2014 Education and Science Forum. 

The Biennial Education and Science Forums provide opportunities to showcase the results of collaborative research and education projects between students at NOAA EPP-funded academic institutions and NOAA scientists; to generate new engagement opportunities; and, to promote professional development for STEM undergraduate and graduate students.
