We know local decisions have global impacts, but what does this up-scaling look like in practice? Portland State has established a new collaborative research center that will create models for linking across space and time scales, from the neighborhood to the region, and from the hour to the year. This effort will take students and researchers outside the classroom to work alongside the community to design real solutions for managing the precious natural resources in our backyard and beyond.
