1. What is the deadline for applications for the Phase 1 Innovations Lab?
Applications are due by midnight, January 31, 2021 (your local time).
2. Will the required NEPA assessment and permitting needs for any relocation be funded by NSF separately or will these (potentially costly and time-consuming) needs be carved out of O&M expenses for OOI ?
All NEPA assessments and permits (and stakeholder inputs) will need to be completed, and therefore paid for. As these costs are part of operations, and WHOI will continue to be the Pioneer Array operator, NSF will work with the OOI facility on such matters.
