U.S.-China Ecopartnership for Environmental Sustainability - USCEES

Chinese Visiting Scholars Network for Natural and Managed Ecosystems Research-1st Lunch Meeting

September 26 @ 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM - Mann Hall 203

Each year, over 200 of China’s leading professors, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students are hosted by Purdue faculty as visiting scholars. These research stays present a great opportunity for organizing the Chinese scholars who are from different places in China but working in similar or identical areas of research into specific thematic areas to promote professional development and research. The Chinese Vsiting Scholars Network for Natural and Managed Ecosystems Research (NNMER) group will be our first test for other potential future thematic areas of Purdue’s visiting scholars sponsored by USCEES.
