Spring Symposium & Reception

May 24, 2024, 3:00-6:00 PM

We’re excited to grow our community by building connections across the UW community, industry partners, and organizations across the Seattle area working on environmental challenges, climate change, and sustainability. We recognize the deep expertise and exciting work happening at many organizations and in many units across campus and want to create stronger connections.

The goal of this event is to share research, create networking opportunities, identify projects or areas of common interest, and explore potential opportunities to collaborate. We will begin with time to view posters followed by a series of short research talks. After the talk we will continue the poster session + networking with refreshments.

Location: University of Washington, Zillow Commons, 4th floor of the Bill and Melinda Gates Center for CSE (CSE2)
