GLIN Site of the Month The Great Lakes Regional Research Information Network (GLRRIN) is designed to foster research coordination within the Great Lakes region by enhancing communications and collaboration among agencies and research scientists. Established in 2006 by NOAA Sea Grant, GLIN and regional partners, GLRRIN is a free service and offers research-related news and upcoming events, and profiles of Great Lakes researchers and their current projects. Searchable databases of researchers, listed by interest and expertise, and funding opportunities are coming soon.
