Mar 3, 2011: noon 300 Rice Hall Topic: NSF Science and Technology Center on Biodiversity Proposal
 

Summary: Mar 3, 2011: noon 300 Rice Hall
Topic: NSF Science and Technology Center on Biodiversity Proposal
Organizers: Alex Travis and Kelly Zamudio
This lunch brought together a diverse group to exchange of idea around a possible Science and Technology Center
proposal focusing on biodiversity and anthropogenic change. The possible topic might include climate change, but also
allow Cornell to play to other strengths in areas such as eutrophication, toxins, introduced species, changes in land use,
etc. The group discussed organizational schemes to help balance social and life sciences contributions. Kelly Zamudio
presented information on the Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (BiKF) http://www.bikf.de/root/index.php in
Germany as a possible model organization. The group discussion included some early ideas on component parts of the
Center, reviewed the timing that will be required to pull this together, and lastly, outlined the funding opportunity itself.
Participants formed a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary effort with multiple investigators and a broad range of
interests and expertise. Followon group meetings are planned, focusing on upcoming proposal deadlines.
