MEOPAR to increase focus on partner needs as part of $28.5 million renewal

The MEOPAR Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE) has been renewed for another five years, including additional funding to implement a research plan that directly responds to the needs of partners and end-users. The Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR) received $28.5 million from the ‘classic’ NCE program that will leverage an equal amount in cash and in-kind from an array of academic, non-profit, industry and government partners who also have a stake in better understanding and mitigate marine risks and hazards.

MEOPAR and Frailty Network funding renewed

The Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) program has announced $52 million in funding over five years to renew funding for two centres — the Marine Environmental, Observation, Prediction and Response network (MEOPAR) and the Canadian Frailty Network (CFN).
