A state university committed to both pure and applied research received a 5-year $20-million National Science Foundation grant to undertake new, interdisciplinary, and stakeholder-driven research on freshwater security.

A collateral effort brought more than 20 researchers from different disciplines together to develop dispute prevention protocols that would avoid future conflicts over grants, authorship, and publications.
