CIRES' IRP Poster Session and Reception

CIRES' IRP Poster Session and Reception

The reception will feature the research results of the 2016 IRP winners, listed below. Light refreshments and beverages will be served.

The Innovative Research Program (IRP) is an internal CIRES competition designed to stimulate a creative research environment within CIRES and to encourage synergy between disciplines and research colleagues. The program encourages novel, unconventional or fundamental research that might otherwise be difficult to fund. CIRES-wide competitions are conducted each year to foster an innovative research environment where risk taking is allowed and even encouraged.
