USBR-NIST Exploratory Research Symposium
This project will fund the organization of an exploratory research symposium between researchers at USBR and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). The goal will be to familiarize researchers with projects at each institution and leave the meeting with 4-5 topics with immediate potential for collaboration.
Need and Benefit
The proximity of USBR-Denver Office and NIST-Boulder lends itself well to collaboration. In addition, NIST focuses primarily on basic science and research of measurement techniques and instrumentation, while USBR can provide a complementary practical perspective to research problems and the expertise and infrastructure for field testing. This Symposium will be designed to help managers and researchers identify research areas of mutual interest and start a dialog for future collaboration in those areas.
