Peer Review - 2014

Scientific research projects that the LCCMR recommends for funding from the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund have an additional requirement above and beyond what is required for other projects. Project managers of research projects recommended for funding are required to produce a research addendum that provided additional background that goes into greater detail on their proposed research. The addendums are being peer reviewed in accordance with M.S.116P.08, Subd. 6.

To see project proposals click on the LCCMR ID of the appropriation next to the project title in the column "LCCMR ID" To see the research addendums as revised through the peer review process click on the link in the column "Post Peer Review Addendum. "The see the research addendums prior to the peer review process click on the link in the column "Initial Research Addendum".
