MSU Leads Global Effort to Study Link Between People, Planet

Posted By: Kyle Mulder    Published: Monday, 23 Apr 2012

Hundreds of scientists from around the world are involved in a new initiative at Michigan State
University to improve cutting-edge research on the increasingly fragile relationship between humans and the environment.

The National Science Foundation recognized this research as a priority and has selected MSU to lead the effort, called the International Network of Research on Coupled Human and Natural Systems, or CHANS-net. The NSF is supporting the project with a $1.5 million, five-year grant.

MSU’s role includes building a global database of scholars and their projects, fostering collaboration, helping identify and train new talent and raising awareness.
