Climate Change, Human Health, and Resiliency Forum

February 24, 2023 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

Moderator:  John Tsapogas, RFCUNY Office of Award Pre-Proposal Support (APPS)

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) is interested in continuing its ties with the City University of New York (CUNY) and we are interested in building opportunities with researchers in Japan in areas related to science, engineering, and health.  As part of this relationship, we are organizing a joint forum on a theme of mutual interest. On February 24, 2023, we are convening a forum titled Climate Change, Human Health, and Resiliency. Collaboration opportunities with Japanese colleagues is of course the focus but raising the profile (and attractiveness) of the intersection of these three thematic areas at CUNY is also a desired outcome of the convening.  We’re planning on having sessions on US Federal agency (NIH and NSF) funding opportunities, talks about JSPS and Japanese funding opportunities that support this work;  a session where Japanese researchers share their perspectives on their research; and a panel made up of CUNY faculty and a graduate student where they also make research presentations.
