The 2018 HuRRI (Hurricane Resilience Research Institute) seminar series sponsored by the College of Engineering will consist of three brown bag lunch seminars focused on Hurricane Resilience Solutions. The purpose of this seminar series is to bring researchers together, with the goal of initiating new collaborations and to prepare joint research proposals for HuRRI. These seminars are open to the University community and will be held in MEA 202, the Jose Milton Leadership Hall, located in the McArthur Engineering Annex. A light lunch will be provided.
