Save the date for the CIRES’ Innovative Research Program (IRP) Virtual Poster Session and Q&A on Thursday, November 19. The event will feature the research results of last year's IRP winners, listed below. This year's format will include introductions by Waleed Abdalati, CIRES Director, and Christine Wiedinmyer, CIRES Associate Director for Science, as well as short presentations from each IRP Winner followed by a Q&A virtual session with the presenters.
The IRP is an internal CIRES competition designed to stimulate a creative research environment within CIRES and to encourage synergy between disciplines and research colleagues. The program encourages novel, unconventional or fundamental research that might otherwise be difficult to fund. CIRES-wide competitions are conducted each year to foster an innovative research environment where risk taking is allowed and even encouraged.

CIRES Members Council Meeting
CIRES Members Council - November meeting
The CIRES Members' Council (CMC) was created in 1997 to act as an information and policy conduit between CIRES' leadership and the Institute's Members (Associate Scientists, Research Scientists, and Administrative Associates). The Council represents the interests of all CIRES Members with respect to CIRES governance, scientific direction, and the day-to-day workplace environment. As a representative group made up of CIRES Members, it is tasked with: Representing the concerns of the CIRES Membership by bringing issues to the attention of the CIRES administration. Working to improve the lines of communication within and between all CIRES units; Providing a means of Member participation in CIRES governance and a voice on committees and working groups which form the core of that governance; Contributing to the process which determines CIRES' research direction and areas of research; Fostering a positive workplace environment and Members' connection with CIRES by facilitating Members' understanding of their roles within CIRES.
The CIRES Members Council provides the opportunity for service as well as career enhancement, benefiting representatives and constituents alike.
