The Rhode Island Foundation has announced the winners for this year’s innovation fellowships. The program is aimed at sparking new ideas for the state. The award comes with a $300,000 grant.
This year’s two winners include John Haley, a scientist specializing in marine fisheries. He’s working on a product to improve mussel aquaculture. It’s a kind of cord that’s “pre-loaded” with mussel larvae to speed up the cultivation time for mussel farmers.
