Climate Change Studies at UT-Austin

Designed to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and research at The University of Texas at Austin , the symposium brought together over 150 faculty, guests and graduates students to discuss active research at UT on topics including: climate modeling, impacts on ecological systems, implications for law and policy, and upcoming interdisciplinary funding opportunities in climate change research. Through its scope, the symposium presented attendees with a unique opportunity to meet other researchers and initiate interdisciplinary projects. It also provided an opportunity to demonstrate the depth of climate-related research at UT-Austin for local, state and federal agencies and prospective students. By all measures, the symposium was a success – one that ESI looks forward to building upon again in the near future.
