ARIES: Five Years of Scientific Collaboration

Mar 25, 2016, 3:00pm - 4:30pm
1080 Physics Research Bldg., Robert Smith Seminar Room

The Environmental Science Graduate Program (ESGP) welcomes John Craynon, Director, Appalachian Research Initiatives for Environmental Science, who will present ARIES: Five Years of Scientific Collaboration.

The Appalachian Research Initiative for Environmental Science (ARIES) was formed in 2011 to provide research into the environmental, social, economic and public health impacts of energy production in Appalachia. The program was managed by the Virginia Center for Coal and Energy Research at Virginia Tech and involved the major research institutions in the region, including the Ohio State University. In this presentation, Dr. Craynon, who has served as the director of the program since its inception, will provide an overview of key research findings and the scope of the program. Additionally, he will focus on the primary lessons of collaboration and how a disparate group of researchers became a unified cadre.

The event is co-sponsored by SENR and the Subsurface Energy Resources Center.
