The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) welcomes twelve new projects starting in 2018. The projects include 1 Workshop, 1 Foundation, and 10 Pursuits.
Welcome to version 2.0 of our website. Our first website was designed in two weeks ... this one has taken a little longer. However, we think our new one brings a tremendous improvement in functionality and design. Like a synthesis project, our team sought out ideas from a diverse set of users: researchers, students, policy makers, and staff, to name a few. We received proposals from many different design teams and selected LMD Agency to be our partner. We required a compressed schedule, and they delivered a creative website that met our parameters. We thank them for their professional efforts.
On our side, it was truly a team effort. Everyone within SESYNC participated in some fashion - from writing text, providing data, or reviewing design options. Our core team consisted of Mike Smorul, Travis Burrell, Mary Shelley, and Amanda Grimes; we now have a healthy appreciation of what it takes to design a responsive website.
Our new site has been designed to showcase new opportunities, funded projects, and results for our community. As you tour it, please drop us a line to let us know your thoughts and recommendations for future enhancements.
SESYNC Accounts are available for our researchers and their affiliates and all working group/project members. If you're requesting an account, please let us know which group/researcher you are affiliated with. If you just want to receive information from us, you don't need an account, just fill out our newsletter signup form and we'll get you added.
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) offers an integrated program for collaborative and individual research focused on critical problems in socio-environmental science. All projects are initiated by a proposal to SESYNC. Unless otherwise noted, requests for proposals are issued twice each year with proposal submission deadlines of May 15 and October 15. Funding is determined on the basis of a review conducted by the SESYNC Scientific Review Committee in July and December.
