It covers a range of topics including air and water quality, climate change, extreme weather, sustainable communities and green energy.
As part of this project, CGRER is partnering with Iowa radio stations to air a weekly radio segment, also called Iowa Environmental Focus.

It awards seed grants, fosters interdisciplinary courses, provides state-of-the-art research facilities, and holds seminars and symposia.
