National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis

A core part of our approach is working in partnership with foundations, government agencies, nonprofits, and other scientific institutions to enhance the capacity and impact of solutions-oriented science. 

We build partnerships in the following ways:

Joint projects

We collaborate with scientists, foundations, government agencies, nonprofits, or consortiums with research questions that could benefit from our approach, align with our mission, and have a high potential for impact on scientific understanding, policy, and/or management.

Facility use

We occasionally make our facility in Santa Barbara available for hosting already-funded workshops or working groups that closely align with our mission. Our facility can serve as a “neutral” location that nurtures group creativity and productivity. However, given our limited personnel capacity, we cannot accommodate all requests.

If we do agree to host your group, we ask for a nominal fee to cover the technical and logistical support of your meeting.
