These individuals will be appointed based on interest, expertise, opportunity for staff development and availability as determined by OR&R management. Interactions between NOAA Project Liaisons and CRRC Project Principal Investigators are expected to improve the relevance of the funded work to OR&R needs and build partnerships within the research community. Project Liaisons will:
- Provide technical advice to the CRRC Co-Directors. This would include working directly with the CRRC Co-directors to: review project experimental design/quality assurance plans, read and comment on progress reports, and review documents and presentations along with the CRRC Science Advisory Panel and other entities, as appropriate.
- Visit project research sites, as appropriate to conduct reviews or observe experiments.
- Work with the Co-Directors, other OR&R staff, and the Project Principal Investigators to proactively translate the research to field application.
