The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable will convene a webinar to discuss a recent report on The Role of Engineering to Address Climate Change by the Engineering Research Visioning Alliance (ERVA). ERVA visioning events enable the engineering research community to identify opportunities and priorities for high-impact research that addresses global and societal change. This report focuses on specific research directions through which engineering can effectively be used to mitigate the impact of climate change.
The event’s Thematic Task Force, comprised of academic, corporate, and non-profit experts, was responsible for the content planning. During this webinar, the co-chair of the Thematic Task Force, Bruce Logan, Director of the Institutes of Energy and the Environment at the Pennsylvania State University; and ERVA co-PI, Anthony Boccanfuso, President and CEO of University-Industry Demonstration Partnership, will present on the identified research priorities and key recommendations in the report, and will discuss the engineering research community’s role in enabling convergent and inclusive climate solutions.
