Research to Action
ISS hosts Research to Action Symposiums that bring together faculty and community members working on related issues. The symposiums are structured around brief 5-minute information blast presentations—think mini-TED Talks—that provide the opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share ideas, explore existing and potential projects, and build new connections to advance research and implementation of projects on a given topic.
ISS has held Research to Action Symposiums in recent years on topics including ecosystem services, social determinants of health, substance abuse, food systems, and urban sustainability. Check PSU sustainability event listings for upcoming Research to Action events.
