The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Environmental Information, challenges academic institutions to propose innovative ways to utilize TRI data through the 2015 Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) University Challenge.

Anyone affiliated with an accredited academic institution is encouraged to apply. Selected project teams will serve as 2015 TRI University Challenge partners. The EPA is placing priority on projects that focus on Community Engagement, Pollution Prevention (P2) & Sustainability, and Turning Environmental Data into Understanding.

The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI), a resource of the US Environmental Protection Agency, is a set of publicly available databases containing information on releases of specific toxic chemicals and their management as waste, as reported annually by U.S. industrial and federal facilities. This inventory was established under the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA). TRI data, beginning with the 1987 reporting year, covers air, water, land, and underground injection releases, as well as transfers to waste sites. In agreement with the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990, source reduction and recycling data is also included in TRI.
