Development of a Longitudinal Strategic Plan for Research and Education at The Cayo Santiago Field Station, Puerto Rico
We are happy to announce that the CPRC successfully held last week the National Science Foundation-funded workshop Development of a Longitudinal Strategic Plan for Research and Education at The Cayo Santiago Field Station, Puerto Rico. The main objective of the workshop was to gather experts in biological field station administration, research and public education, and UPR administrators to discuss the mission and major needs of the Cayo Santiago Field Station in Humacao. We were able to gather 25 national and international experts. The final product of this workshop will be a 10-year master plan for infrastructure improvement. Such new facilities will support research development, as well as academic and outreach programs. The master plan will serve as platform to develop a proposal under the NSF Improvements in Facilities, Communications, and Equipment at Biological Field Stations and Marine Laboratories (FSML) program.
