Are you an early-career scientist grappling with how to make your research more directly useful to or by the public?
Join Lisa Dilling, director of Western Water Assessment at CIRES, for a public talk on usable science on Wednesday, March 6th from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in CIRES Auditorium (Ekeley, room 338).Following the panel there will be a discussion from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in CIRES Auditorium (Ekeley, room S274) featuring CU Boulder researchers whose science has been used beyond the university. We will explore different pathways to usable science, look at practical considerations and pitfalls, and learn from some of the researchers who have made usable science a major part of their careers. A participatory workshop will follow for graduate students and early-career scientists to consider the real-world potential of making their own research more usable now and throughout their careers. Space in the workshop is limited; food will be provided.
