eiLab @MIT & Tufts
In the context of a Rocca Seed Funds initiative, we started a collaboration with Prof. Dara Entekhabi and Dr. Sarah Fletcher from the MIT Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The first meeting of the project was held at MIT from February 5th to 7th, and it included the seminar Dammed or damned: 5 open challenges in river basin development given by Andrea, Marta, and Matteo as part of the Environmental Science Seminar Series at MIT.
In addition, we had the opportunity of meeting people from the Joint Program on the science and policy of global change and to discuss ongoing researches for identifying potential future collaborations.
Lastly, on February 7th we visited the research group of Jon Lamontagne at Tufts University; beside discussing ongoing and future collaborations, the visit included a seminar during the Tufts CREATE Solutions kick-off event where we shared the experience of the DAFNE project.
