Unintended Consequences of Deepwater Horizon Incident

Unintended Consequences of Deepwater Horizon Incident
with Kevin Shaw, Program Manager, Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative

The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) was formed to administer the $500 million fund committed by BP for research to understand the fate and effects of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The Initiative is a “no strings attached” investment in independent research for a 10-year period. After an initial year of block funding through research entities in each of the Gulf States directly impacted by the oil spill to ensure rapid response capability, awards have been made by a peer-review process led by an independent research board. Kevin Shaw will present an overview of the GoMRI, its goals, and the current status of the program.

    Not much science. Mostly accounting and acronyms. The least interesting one so far.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
