Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25)

Superfund Research Program

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The overarching goal of the Superfund Research Program (SRP) Occupational and Safety Education Programs on Emerging Technologies is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. To accomplish the stated goal, this funding opportunity supports creative educational activities with a primary focus on courses for skill development and curriculum or methods development.

The intent is to provide higher education institutions the opportunity to develop continuing education and academic curricula on the occupational health and safety management practices in the areas of emerging technologies (e.g., emerging hazardous waste products, green chemistry, sustainable remediation, and detection technologies) to industrial hygienists and graduate students involved in the research, evaluation, management, and handling of hazardous substances. The SRP also expects that such programs will provide a unique educational opportunity to those professionals involved in the training of other personnel for careers in these new industries. These programs are meant to expand and complement existing educational programs in occupational safety and health and industrial hygiene.

The most recent RFA was released on June 15, 2015, and the application deadline was October 20, 2015. For more information, see RFA-ES-15-014: Superfund Research Program Occupational and Safety Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25).
