Researchers today are charged to simultaneously address a growing demand for technological advances and an expanding list of threats to our planet and humanity. Solutions to these challenges will not be realized within siloed areas of research, but through the kinds of dynamic, innovative thought produced when researchers work across disciplines.

Converge to Transform is a webinar series to engage the CUNY community and key stakeholders in the vital task of shaping the future of our interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and convergence research programs for the public good. Events in the series will include keynote presentations, online talks and a culminating virtual Twitter poster session.

Past events in the series explored CUNY’s interdisciplinary impact and opportunities in the following research areas:

  • May 7, 2020: Tracking, Treating and Stemming COVID-19
  • May 26, 2020: Making Energy Sustainable
