Research from the NHC Quick Response Grant Program
Mon. 2:00-3:30 p.m., Interlocken C
The Natural Hazards Center Quick Response Grant Program provides funds for researchers to quickly travel to disaster-affected areas to capture perishable data. In addition to expanding academic knowledge, funded researchers submit brief reports that make preliminary analyses of recent events available to the Hazards Center's multidisciplinary network of researchers, practitioners, and educators. The program promotes innovation in disaster research by favoring students, new researchers, and novel areas of study.
This session will allow Quick Response grantees to highlight the varied and fascinating research they've completed with the support of NHC Quick Response Program.
