On Day One, the Summit convened at the historic National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, DC. Keynote speaker Reginald DesRoches kicked things off then joined our expert panel discussion on the future of natural hazards research. We enjoyed TED-style talks from leading researchers and closed the day with a community-wide visioning session. See details Day 1 program.
The NAS Building, dedicated in 1924, houses the executive offices of the National Academy of Engineering, National Academy of Sciences, and the National Academy of Medicine.
Day 2 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott focused on research needs in academia. Participants joined mini-workshops based on the previous day’s visioning session, followed by a networking lunch and poster session. The afternoon included an early career panel and focused discussions on key topics: hazards modeling, data reuse, shared-use equipment, hybrid simulation, and enabling convergence in disaster research. Find details in the Day 2 program.
Many thanks to the co-chairs of the 2022 Natural Hazards Research Summit!
