Los Alamos/UAF Collaboration Meet & Greet
Wednesday, Aug 11, 2021 at 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
UAF and Los Alamos National Lab are hosting a joint meet and greet to strengthen relationships and build collaborations across our institutions. All UAF and LANL researchers and students are welcome to join the 90-minute online event.
In early 2021, UAF and Los Alamos National Lab established an institutional agreement to retain and recruit science and engineering staff and students and to enhance the academic culture at both institutions. The initial focus of the collaboration is space and Earth sciences, including space physics & upper atmosphere, geophysics & energy, climate & environment, health & biomedicine, security.
This meet and greet is designed to generate ideas and help build potential collaborations around joint research, collaborations on future funding proposals, and exchange of faculty/researchers and students.
