Upcoming Event: Capitalizing on BU’s Cross-Discipline Research Centers

The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future invites you to attend the Boston University Research event, “Home Away from Home: Capitalizing on BU’s Cross-Discipline Research Centers” on Monday, October 31 from 9:00 to 10:30 am at the Photonics Colloquium Room.

Boston University is home to 13 University-level centers and institutes, standalone entities that cross disciplines, schools, and campuses to promote research in and solutions to society’s most pressing problems. At this event, leaders from three of these groups – the Pardee Center, the Initiative on Cities, and the Institute for Sustainable Energy – will discuss their units’ missions, structure, and available resources, as well as the exciting projects made possible through interdisciplinary collaboration. Attend to meet new colleagues, find research collaborators, and learn about the benefits of becoming affiliated with a University-level research center.

This event will feature Anthony Janetos (Director, Pardee Center, and Professor, Earth & Environment), Graham Wilson (Director, Initiative on Cities, and Professor, Political Science), and Jacqueline Ashmore (Director of Research and Outreach Activities, Institute for Sustainable Energy).

The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future conducts interdisciplinary and policy-relevant research on a wide range of issues that contribute to long-term improvements in the human condition. Through its research, education, and outreach, the Center works to ensure that decisions made today lead to better outcomes tomorrow.

Founded by the late former Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Professor Wilson, the Initiative on Cities promotes and advances the adaptive urban leadership strategies necessary to support cities as dynamic centers of economic growth and development in the 21st century. 

A new generation of “think and do tanks,” the Institute for Sustainable Energy harnesses world-class research and education resources and engages with outside stakeholders to contribute to important global economic, social, and technological challenges related to sustainable energy.
