CU Boulder & The Conversation

CU Boulder joined The Conversation  last year, and the results have been impressive: Experts in sea ice and nanotechnology, the history of mathematics and groundwater have penned dozens of essays that have been read by tens of thousands of people on and reprinted in >100 other outlets.

How can you work with The Conversation, and how does it work? What are the benefits of writing short articles on timely topics related to your research?

Please join a lunchtime conversation with chief innovation officer Bruce Wilson and environment & energy editor Jenny Weeks and several CU Boulder researchers who have worked already with The Conversation—Mark Serreze (NSIDC Director), Lupita Montoya (researcher, Engineering) and Matthew Coggon and Aaron Lamplugh (CIRES researchers in NOAA).

Space is limited to 40 people so RSVP is required (eventbrite). Lunch is provided.
