The Association for Consulting Expertise Presents:


USM’s Sustainability Solutions Initiative

The University of Maine recently announced that it is has received a $20 million National Science Foundation EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) grant for its Sustainability Solutions Initiative.  ACE is excited to have Charlie Colgan, Professor of Economics at the USM Muskie School of Business come speak to us about The Grant and The Initiative, which is a 5 year project involving U Maine, USM, and nine other higher education institutions to investigate how to shape more sustainable landscape use in Maine.  He will also share thoughts and insight on the relationship between this initiative and the "green economy" ideas that are being discussed all around us.
