Rising Tide: University of Miami’s Interdisciplinary Approach to Coastal Resilience

Sunday, December 8/

4–5:30PM/

How do you translate scientific research into design innovation? This panel probes this question with designers whose research teams tackle sea-level rise and related challenges at the University of Miami. The teams are part of UM’s U-LINK initiative, a program that promotes interdisciplinary research for practical applications and problem-solving. Projects include, among other things, innovative solutions for the next generation of coastal design and proposals for the reduction of wave energy through the restoration of green infrastructure.
