Partner Event: ColLABorate Consilience 2023

ColLABorate consilience is a half-day event exploring how an interdisciplinary approach can yield unique, novel solutions for sustainable laboratories.

Three project teams will share three complementary case studies providing examples of collaborative efforts across multiple disciplines that were instrumental in the synthesis of their facility design, construction, operation, or policy development.

The novel format of ColLABorate enhances the interaction between presenter and attendees to provide a more in-depth learning and sharing experience by distributing the synopsis of each presentation in advance. Allowing you to have the opportunity to provide questions and comments while also analyzing the content to have an open dialogical during the presentation.

With two physical locations to gather and a virtual option, the conversations are bound to be diverse and wide-reaching.
