Research and innovation play a pivotal role in environmental protection by providing information on & assessments of the current state of the environment, building environmental projections & trends, and developing new tools for environmental management. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science, Technology, Research and Innovation for the Environment (STRIVE) Programme has been planned specifically to support environmental research activity in areas closely aligned to policy needs. Since 2000, the EPA has supported over 600 research projects ranging in size from individual scholarships to large interdisciplinary collaborative projects.
