The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences (UMCES) has long been an advocate for environmental causes all around the world. But creating a global network of online resources is easier said than done.

UMCES’ Integration and Application Network (IAN) currently works to offer practical and up-to-date evaluations on a variety of environmental issues, from ecosystem health reports to oyster habitat management. However, UMCES IAN needed a partner that could help support their web, mobile, video, and print services, and Fearless Solutions has recently been awarded a Science Marketing, Communication and Website Services Contract to fill this gap.

This 3-year contract will allow Fearless to use their extensive software experience to address the diverse needs of UMCES and their various partners. Delali Dzirasa, the founder of Fearless, said that UMCES IAN works on “over 40 different contracts and projects every year, so UMCES now has the opportunity to leverage Fearless on those projects.”

This means being ready to adapt to the requirements of a variety of organizations all around the world. And with our fast-paced, tailor-made agile approach to software solutions, Fearless is definitely up to the task.

“UMCES IAN works with organizations worldwide, and we will be the technical and communications arm for these different tasks,” Dzirasa said. “They’ll have a particular problem, and our solutions will vary based on the project.”

Fearless has worked on a diverse array of projects over the years, but “we’ve always been engaged in supporting technology that has an impact on humanity,” Dzirasa said. “Environmental work is a natural extension of that. It’s really exciting to be able to work alongside a group of scientists that really understand it and help them to connect with folks on a mass scale. Everyone on the planet is a stakeholder in this.”
