WWETAC collaborates with federal, state, university, and non-profit researchers, practitioners, and managers. Potential interactions range from maintaining ongoing discussions, seeking advice on possible RD&A projects, as well as and joint activities. There are many ways for the center to interact directly with partners, the most obvious being to undertake joint projects through interagency agreements, research joint ventures, cooperative agreements, and grants. In addition, possibilities such as fellowship programs, post-doctoral appointments, and sabbatical opportunities could leverage the center’s funding, provide unique RD&A experiences for scientists and managers (regardless of employer) and assure a continual flow of fresh ideas through the organization.
