In the spirit of unifying environmental interests at Purdue and the local community, the Ecological Sciences & Engineering Interdisciplinary Graduate program will host our fifth annual campus-wide integration symposium. This year's theme is Solutions for 7: 7 Billion People - 7 Grand Challenges, focusing on 7 of our grandest challenges within the context of population growth: biodiversity, climate, energy, food security, land use change, social equity, and water. This symposium seeks to stimulate interest and discussion in the Purdue community about the various interdisciplinary aspects of environmental research and application.
This year's symposium will take place on November 8-9, 2011, at Purdue‘s Hall for Discovery Learning and Research in Discovery Park. Attendance to all events is free.
Registration is now open and abstracts are now being accepted for the Undergraduate and Graduate Student Research Showcase and Poster Presentation Competition.
The ESE Symposium, a student-run, interdisciplinary event, provides undergraduate and graduate students with an opportunity to present their research and interact with experts in various environmental fields. It also raises awareness about the ESE program and other environmentally focused initiatives at Purdue University and beyond.
