Partnering with Practitioners Roundtable

Tue. 7:15 to 8:15 a.m., Centennial E

Researchers and practitioners often work together across institutional and organizational boundaries. Join this roundtable to learn how such partnerships are formed, sustained, and ultimately lead to better outcomes for communities working to mitigate hazards and effectively prepare for and recover from disaster.

The roundtable will involve a team gaming session. Conveners will engage participants in a crossword puzzle focusing on words and phrases that are well-known as "tips of the trade" for mitigation planning and project development. Teams will be provided with definitions and will win points as they work together to solve the puzzle. There are no losers in this event, so come prepared to have fun, learn something new, and make connections!

This roundtable is designed for both academics and practitioners, and all are welcome.
