The AC-ERE has particular interest in those aspects of environmental science, engineering, and education that affects multiple disciplines. The committee includes scientists from many disciplines, including a member from each of the other NSF advisory committees, and focuses on coordination, integration, and management of environmental programs across the Agency. AC-ERE interests include environmental education, digital libraries, and cyberinfrastructure, as well as interdisciplinary programs, centers, and major instrumentation.
A full committee meeting is held three times a year to review and evaluate policies and program opportunities focused on environmental research and education.
