A major research center for sustainable building technology has been founded at the University of Colorado Boulder.
The National Science Foundation-funded initiative will advance sustainable building projects ranging from HVAC manufacturing, to smart glazing for windows, building controls, insulation, as well as solar installations.
CU Boulder's John Crimaldi will lead a groundbreaking $20 million international research network dubbed Odor2Action starting this fall. The work is aimed at understanding how animals use information from odors in their environment to guide behavior, with far-ranging implications for our understanding of the human brain.
We aspire to lead in extraordinary education and research the sustainable development, management and safety of civil and architectural infrastructure systems, serving society in harmony with our natural resources.
