Research Partners

FERA research is conducted in partnership with a great many governmental and non-governmental agencies. These partnerships increase both the chances for successful field work and the opportunities to transfer technology directly to those who can make the most use of it. It assures that our research is relevant across a wide spectrum of users. These partners are listed in no particular order.
