The Advisory Committee for Environmental Research and Education (AC ERE) recently published a new report entitled, America’s Future: Environmental Research and Education for a Thriving Century.
The AC ERE is a multi-disciplinary group of scientists who advise NSF senior management on strategic planning for NSF’s agency-wide environmental research and education portfolio. The group was established in 2000 by then Director Dr. Rita Colwell, in recognition that environmental science and engineering is intrinsically multi-disciplinary and must involve all parts of NSF.
A description of this latest report of the AC ERE can be found on the NSF News page, here: http://www.nsf.gov/mobile/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=136041&org=NSF ,
