Texas A&M Energy Institute Research Workshop: Water-Energy-Food Nexus Dialogue

The Texas A&M Energy Institute, in partnership with the Texas A&M University Water-Energy-Food Nexus Initiative and “Water-Energy-Food Nexus: Toward Sustainable Resource Management BAEN/CVEN 642”, will host a half-day research workshop at the Memorial Student Center titled, “Water-Energy-Food Nexus Dialogue,” on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 from 11:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Global populations depend on water, food, and energy to survive and thrive. Changes that impact one of these areas can have consequences on another or both of the others. This workshop will discuss the state of the art challenges and opportunities in research and education surrounding this new field of science and policy. 

Faculty members, graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and staff members are welcome to attend the research workshop.
