Exploratory Research / Feasibility Studies


The Northeast Center's Feasibility Program offers researchers, educators and non-agricultural safety experts support for initial projects that show potential for expanding agricultural health and safety capabilities in the NE region. These are projects that might lead to a larger and more formal project at some point in the next few years. The NEC has a well-established process for soliciting, evaluating, contracting, and tracking feasibility projects. In the past this program has been successful at encouraging collaborations, and stimulating innovative approaches. We are able to support an average of 3 projects each year. These projects are throughout the northeast, in the areas of research, prevention, intervention, or education. Our intent is that the program will continue to encourage these types of initiatives.
