Health and the Built Environment Workshops: Combustion and Particulates

December 2, 2021
3:00PM - 5:00PM
Online

Participate in a series of four workshops on topics related to health and the built environment throughout the 2021–22 academic year. 

The aim of this workshop series is to bring together the same interdisciplinary group of researchers to each workshop, to grow collaborative and cooperative teams and to connect the Penn State research community across disciplines working at the intersection of health, climate change, the built environment and policy. The workshops will focus on this intersection and the needs of vulnerable populations pertaining to a specific topic.

Each workshop will highlight Penn State’s expertise related to the session topic through brief disciplinary, team-built presentations; identify the current boundaries of research within disciplines as it relates to health sciences, climate sciences, building sciences, urban science and policy; and propose high-priority research topics and collaborations across disciplines. Questions and discussions will be encouraged, particularly those that explore disciplinary differences in terminology, metrics, building codes, research methods and funding opportunities.
