Sponsored by Washington State University, Oregon State University, and the University of Idaho.
As climate change reshapes fire regimes across the Pacific Northwest and beyond, we face an increasingly complex and challenging set of human and environmental problems. Interdisciplinary research efforts are needed to better understand how integrate and better utilize the full spectrum of wildfire research to empower communities and foster landscapes that are resilient or thrive with fire.
This is an opportunity to network with old and new colleagues from across the Pacific Northwest and contribute to a publication that outlines our most pressing interdisciplinary wildfire challenges for future research.
Who should attend: Scientists, researchers, and those interested in addressing the complex challenges that wildfire brings to the Pacific Northwest.
Agenda Topics include:
- Interdisciplinary panel of experts discussing the future of wildfire research
- Q&A with federal granting agency program officers interested in wildfire
- Breakout discussions to identify key interdisciplinary research topics
- Drafting a prospectus paper on meeting outcomes
