The USCRP funded project database was designed with stakeholders, academics, and Federal partners in mind regarding the inclusion, structure, and presentation of information in the launch of a beta user-interface.
The main capabilities of the current UI are to make the first 62 USCRP-funded projects searchable through various filters, and to provide information on research outcome products and data associated with them. By making project data and outcomes more accessible, past funded projects can be used to inform or support future research directions and/or management and conservation initiatives. Here, outcomes are defined as tangible products that can be found and used as resources (academic advancements, tool advancements, public outreach, and information and data) and data refers to the scientific data which was collected as part of the funded research, how it was collected, where it was collected, and its context (i.e., fieldwork, lab work, or model application).
Currently, the information in the database is for the 62 funded projects, both active and complete, in the first five years of funding, 2016-2021. Newly funded projects, like those in 2022 and 2023, will be added in future updates.
