Climate and Interdisciplinary Health at Harvard, Part 2: A Focus on Translation of Research into Policy

Climate
Health
Policy

Please register to join us on March 7th from 5:30-8pm for an interdisciplinary climate & health networking session and dinner. The event is the second in a three-part series sponsored by the Salata Institute. Each has a specific focus for guided discussion, and the topic for this event is Translation of Research into Policy. We have a panel of three incredible speakers lined up, who will share their insights on this topic from the vantages of academia, nonprofit organizations, government, and industry. The 45-minute panel discussion will be followed by a dinner and networking session for all attendees. The panel will have a virtual option for those who cannot attend the event in person.

Info Session

Salata Institute Climate Research Cluster Info Session III

Research
Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability

The Salata Institute is committed to supporting research that promises to make a real-world impact on the climate crisis. The Climate Research Clusters Program delivers on that commitment by funding research about complex climate problems that produces useful and practical solutions. Clusters comprise interdisciplinary, cross-School teams of researchers, whose varied expertise is required to address the complexity of the problems that they seek to solve. The problems are broad enough that their solutions represent significant progress in meeting the world’s climate challenge. As part of the program, a consultative process was created to facilitate the development of strong proposals to the Climate Research Clusters Program. This process includes Q&A sessions, a networking reception, presentations of proposed projects, and consultations with prospective project teams. While we encourage engagement in this process, participation in these events is optional. Join us for the first information session by registering below.

Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability

Hear from Steven C. Wofsy, Professor of Atmospheric and Environmental Chemistry in the John A. Paulsen School of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard University. He has degrees in Chemistry from University of Chicago (BS, 1966) and Harvard (Ph.D., 1971). His scientific work spans the broad range of processes affecting the chemistry of the atmosphere, including measurements and inverse modeling of regional and global emissions of carbon dioxide and methane from ground based, aircraft, and remote sensing measurements. His studies aim to understand underlying causes for change in atmospheric composition, in order to mitigate human impacts and to help provide scientific information for societal decisions. He is the science lead for the MethaneSAT (satellite) and MethaneAIR (aircraft) imaging spectrometers to measure methane enhancements and determine emissions from sources worldwide. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and recipient of the Macelwane Award and the Revelle Medal of the American Geophysical Union, and NASA’s Distinguished Public Service Medal.
