Joint GNC-VBV Sea Level Rise Task Force Meeting
03/26/19 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
A Joint Task Force meeting has been scheduled for the morning of Tuesday, March 26th at 8:30 a.m. in the Williams Mullen conference room on the 17th floor of the Armada Hoffler building (222 Central Park Avenue) at Town Center, Virginia Beach.
Following a briefing with representatives from ODU last week, we have asked Chip Filer and Emily Steinhilber to meet with us to discuss the ODU initiatives in sea level rise and resiliency. Details will be discussed on the Institute for Coastal Adaptation and Resilience (ICAR), the Open Seas Tech Hub, the long-range objective of having an Open Seas Environmental Center, and the need for private funding support for related university fellows and faculty.
The Open Seas Technology Hub will be a Translational Research to Commercialization (TR2C) Hub in Maritime, Logistics, Marine Science and Resiliency and will foster related entrepreneurial businesses in the region.
This is an important opportunity to address a challenging issue and to diversify our economy. Please plan to attend March 26th and rsvp via the calendar notice or reply to email@example.com
