2nd Annual Poster Session for Research in Sustainability and Resilience Highlights Research at CESR and Around McCormick

CESR’s 2nd Annual Poster Session for Research in Sustainability and Resilience took place on June 6th, drawing a large crowd of students, researchers, and faculty interested in the state of sustainability research in McCormick.  CESR’s Seed Grant winners were at the heart of the event, with nine teams present to highlight their research accomplishments.  With many of the presenting teams nearing the end stage of their seed grant-supported research, posters served as both a showcase of the teams’ achievements and a glimpse of their plans for expansion.  The event also shone a spotlight on the work of young researchers in McCormick.  Most posters were presented by graduate students or postdocs, and the Three Minute Thesis competition was introduced this year, awarding the top three entries with cash prizes and certificates.

CESR awards several Seed Grants each year to support 18-month collaborative research projects in sustainability. Supported by funding from Leslie and Mac McQuown, the CESR Seed Funding program fosters innovative, high-risk research that fosters new faculty collaborations, and provides support for graduate student(s) and/or postdoctoral fellow(s). Results from these projects aim to provide preliminary data to support proposals for funding from federal agencies, foundations, and/or industry. Learn more about the Seed Grant program here.
