Superfund Research Program

2020-2025 Strategic Plan

In 2020, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program, also known as the Superfund Research Program (SRP), engaged stakeholders from academia, environmental health agencies, and not-for-profit organizations to review and refine the SRP strategic plan. The 2020 Strategic Plan (1MB) builds on the 2010 and 2015 SRP Strategic Plans that provided summaries of objectives and goals for the program, and outlined strategies to achieve them. The 2010 Strategic Plan was prepared with significant input from an external advisory panel and stakeholders. The 2015 Strategic Plan was updated to address emerging needs and program goals. In the 2020 update, SRP reaffirms its commitment to the objectives presented in these previous iterations, while focusing SRP research through a systems approach lens to accommodate emerging complexity, and research and training opportunities of the program.
