Launch of the UREx Project

The Urban Resilience to Extreme Weather-Related Events Sustainability Research Network (UREx SRN) consists of  50 researchers from 15 institutions facing the challenges of extreme weather and changing the way we think about urban infrastructure. The SRN team will develop methods and tools to assess how infrastructure can become more resilient, providing ecosystem services, in an effort to improve social well-being.  

You can see much more about our project on our website, recent press in NextCityClimate Wire, additional press here and here, project video, NSF announcement, and on our Twitter page @URExSRN
