THE UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND (URI) IS LAUNCHING AN INSTITUTION- WIDE SIGNATURE RESEARCH INITIATIVE to align capacity and capabilities across all of URI’s colleges to address the environmental, societal and health impacts of land-to-sea plastics pollutants. This initiative will support bold new research and creative activities that draw on the diverse array of specialties and expertise, and encourage collaboration with non-profit, corporate, government and academic peers. URI aims to establish these collaborations to address this complex and global issue with the goal of accelerating the development of scalable and innovative solutions.
