Social Science Research and the NHERI Science Plan


Recorded Forum: March 21, 2024
Time: 2:00 to 2:30 pm MT


The Natural Hazard Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) Science Plan, Third Edition serves to inspire and guide natural hazards researchers exploring disaster research in large-scale experimentation, computer modeling and simulation, the social sciences, and novel engineering techniques for mitigating damage and community disruption from earthquake, wind, flood, fire, and coastal hazards. This webinar will give an overview of the Science Plan. The remaining time will focus on the need for input from social science researchers to assist in the development, execution, and implementation of multi-disciplinary natural hazards research to enhance community resilience.  

We hope you will access the Science Plan in advance of the webinar.  You may also wish to read this short article for a preview of ways social science researchers can leverage elements of the Science Plan when planning their research agendas.

The webinar is limited to 500 participants, so register soon! If you cannot attend, the webinar will be recorded and posted on the CONVERGE webinar series page. Please also sign-up for future events and free resources at the CONVERGE website.
