Event Navigation

This webinar is part of the Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) Actionable Science Webinar Series.

To address the complex and pressing environmental issues facing the Northwest and the world, it is becoming increasingly important for scientists to engage with decision-makers to co-produce science that is useful and used for promoting climate resilience. As a graduate student or postdoctoral scholar interested in doing such work, it can be difficult to navigate the process of working directly with decision-makers (i.e. co-production) when academic structures may not align with a collaborative research approach. In this webinar, a panel of former Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center Fellows will draw from their own research experiences to answer questions including How did you find your project partners? How did you work collaboratively with partners while juggling the demands of academia, especially when timelines and incentive structures might present barriers? How did you get buy-in from your advisors and build partnerships with stakeholders?


Dr. Caitlin Littlefield | Postdoctoral Associate, Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, University of Vermont

Laura Nelson | PhD Candidate, School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, University of Washington

Third panelist TBD


Dr. Mary Ann Rozance | NW CASC Postdoctoral Fellow
