The Conference on World Affairs (CWA) is excited to announce our partnership with the CU Boulder Climate Innovation Collaboratory and the CU Boulder Research & Innovation Office. This partnership provides CWA with support to be able to continue offering free events open to the public, provide student leadership stipends and internships, cover production costs, and speaker-related expenses. 

Also, aligning with our focus on climate this year, the Climate Innovation Collaboratory (CIC) is a nationally competitive, convening body that enables climate action with global, real-world impact through technology and market development.

Deloitte and the University of Colorado Boulder launched the Climate Innovation Collaboratory to translate cutting-edge climate research and data into meaningful climate solutions for businesses, organizations, government agencies and communities.


The Research & Innovation Office

While our researchers, faculty and staff lead the charge, this transformational work includes increasing collaborations with undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, entrepreneurs, and government and industry partners.

The Research & Innovation Office (RIO) is focused on creating impact by cultivating and supporting collaboration, transformation, and leadership. At the heart of this focus are the diverse contributions of a wide range of world-class experts, working together in new and innovative ways to accelerate ideas through the entire innovation lifecycle, from idea to impact.
