Join us for Optimizing Solutions for Resilient Coasts, which will take place at Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville, FL on December 1, 2023, 9am-2pm.  The summit connects 100+ thought leaders, inspiring speakers, and ecology / engineering students to share innovative solutions for improving water quality, restoring ecosystems, and building community resilience in Florida and the region. 

This year’s event will feature keynote talks by scientists from NOAA and the US Army Corps, lightning talks, a student poster session, 'next gen' technology demos, and opportunities for networking with innovative leaders in coastal research and engineering from across Florida.
