ERVA is a new organization charged with strategic convening of interdisciplinary groups of experts to collaboratively identify bold and transformative new engineering research directions. ERVA visioning events will provide unique opportunities for selected participants to advance the ERVA goal of catalyzing the pursuit of innovative, high-impact research that benefits society. Our inaugural visioning event which will explore The Role of Engineering in Addressing Climate Change. As outlined in a recent White House priorities memo, “the United States and the world face a profound climate crisis with a narrow moment to pursue action to avoid the most catastrophic impacts and to seize the opportunities that tackling climate change presents.” The goal of this event is to identify specific areas that are nascent or require additional exploration with potential for the greatest return on investment; participants will help ERVA identify less-explored, basic and use-inspired lines of research ripe for engineering community pursuit.
