New Environmental Restoration Projects Focused on Innovative Technology Transfer

ER Blog Graphic 11-02-15

Transition to end users of the research and demonstrations funded under SERDP and ESTCP is of primary importance to the Programs. To further technology transition efforts, ESTCP released a solicitation in April 2015 to seek innovative technology transfer approaches. The target audience was primarily end users, including: Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) within the military; acquisition program managers; energy managers; natural resource managers; regulatory agency representatives; those responsible for updating design codes or standards; and other practitioners. Proposers were asked to address the transfer needs of a specific ESTCP- or SERDP-funded project or group of projects. A total of 14 projects were selected for funding, eight of which address issues associated with the Environmental Restoration Program Area. The eight Environmental Restoration projects selected for funding are:

  1. Interactive Training System for Reductions in Cost and Complexity of Remediation and Long-Term Management of Contaminated Sites (ER-201566)
    • Dr. David Reynolds, Geosyntec Consultants
  2. T2-Geophysics: A Technology Transfer Program for Facilitating Effective use of Geophysics for Environmental Characterization and Monitoring at DoD Sites  (ER-201567)
    • Dr. Lee Slater, Rutgers University
  3. ER Wiki for Enhanced Transfer SERDP/ESTCP Research to Users (ER-201569)
    • Dr. Robert Borden, Solutions-IES
  4. Contaminant Flux and Fate in Fractured Bedrock (ER-201570)
    • Dr. Charles Schaefer, CDM Smith
  5. A Web-Based Repository for Energetics Contamination on Military Training Ranges (ER-201571)
    • Dr. Susan Taylor, U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory
  6. Delivering Improved Understanding of Natural Attenuation Processes Using a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) (ER-201572)
    • Dr. Pedro Alvarez, Rice University
  7. Catalyzing Rapid Information Transfer Among Key Stakeholders on Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) at Contaminated Military Sites (ER-201574)
    • Dr. Jennifer Field, Oregon State University
  8. Expanding the Impact of SERDP/ESTCP Projects with On-Demand, End-User Focused, Internet Micro-Lectures  (ER-201575)
    • Dr. Charles Newell, GSI Environmental, Inc.

These projects will be initiated in 2015 with products available over the next 15 – 18 months. All products will be available from the SERDP and ESTCP web page and will be announced via social media platforms when available.
