  21-2-2: Public Meeting to Consider Proposed 2021-2024 Triennial Strategic Research Plan and Proposed Research for Fiscal Year 2021-2022
 
The Proposed 2021-2024 Triennial Strategic Research Plan (Plan) reflects a concerted effort to identify CARB's highest priority research initiatives for the next three years and will serve as a guide for the annual selection of individual research projects. The Plan includes a starting point for operationalizing racial equity in CARB research, which will be developed further through a public engagement process starting this year. The Proposed Research for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 will support the initiatives outlined in the Triennial Strategic Research Plan. These research projects will advance the state of the science and support the Board's efforts to meet California’s air quality and climate goals. If the Board approves the Proposed Research, staff will work with research partners to develop full proposals. The Executive Officer will then consider the full proposals for approval and funding with consultation from interested Board members
