Annual Risk Request for Proposals
Goals: Each year, the Risk CoP issues an internal Request for Proposals (RFP). The goals of the Risk RFP are to grow and build capacity across the USGS Risk Community of Practice; incentivize cross-center, cross-mission area, and interdisciplinary research; incentivize a focus on meaningful user engagement; identify and support projects that advance different elements of the Risk Plan; advance USGS goals of diversity and inclusion; use funded projects to demonstrate lessons learned and identify new resources (e.g., expertise, organizations, methods) for pursuing work in risk research and applications; and, leverage foundational datasets. Recipients of funding are listed here: https://www.usgs.gov/special-topic/reducing-risk/science/implementing-risk-plan?qt-science_center_objects=0#qt-science_center_objects
The FY22 RFP will be announced in October, 2022. Please join the Risk CoP for regular updates and information.
The purpose of the Risk Research and Applications Community is to convene like-minded scientists and staff from across USGS to discuss issues relevant to risk research and applications. Monthly meetings include a mix of presentations, discussions, and announcements about relevant resources, events, and activities. Anyone interested is welcome to attend and ideas for future meetings are always appreciated. The establishment of this Community is part of implementing the 2018 USGS Risk Plan, USGS Science for a Risky World: a USGS Plan for Risk Research and Applications.
The USGS Risk Plan addresses the need to grow USGS risk research and applications across a broad range of hazards to provide actionable information for risk reduction to our partners. Recommendation 4.1 states, “create a community of practice for risk research and applications to create a central, Bureau-wide point of contact for risk research and applications and to identify, connect, and coordinate relevant expertise across the Bureau.” Ultimately, the intent is for this community to be grassroots-driven, with the goal of providing a forum for individuals to build connections across centers, programs, and Mission Areas; to identify needs and opportunities to benefit the community; to generate project ideas; and to share resources and expertise. Connectivity across the community will be accomplished via monthly meetings, an online forum, and a face-to-face meeting.
Join us for our next monthly meeting on July 15, 2021 at 1pm ET for Round 1 of presentations from our FY20 Risk RFP Awardees! See "Meetings" below left for more info.
