NASA plans to join other federal agencies in a unique
network of organizations dedicated to providing research,
technical assistance and education to federal land
management, environmental and research agencies and their
potential partners.

The network of Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Units, or
CESUs, creates and maintains cooperative efforts among
federal agencies and universities to share resources and
expertise. On June 19, NASA will become the tenth federal
agency to join this CESU Network.

The CESU Network also encourages professional development of
federal scientists and works to manage federal science
resources efficiently and cost-effectively.

Media representatives are invited to attend NASA’s signing of
the Memorandum of Understanding at the American Association
for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), June 19, 4:45 p.m.

The AAAS is located at 1200 New York Avenue, NW, Washington,
