COP28 and Beyond: NYUAD Research to Achieve Net Zero 

In collaboration with COP28 and as part of NYUAD's leadership of the UAE Universities Climate Network, NYUAD Institute and the Office of Sustainability are organizing a panel discussion on the vital role of research in promoting environmental sustainability. The event will highlight NYUAD's multidisciplinary research initiatives, which range from nanoscale to megaprojects and are aimed at developing energy-efficient structures, low-emission transportation methods, clean water techniques, desalination processes, conservation practices, and policies.

The panel of experts will offer insights into the current state and future direction of research in achieving net-zero emissions and promoting a sustainable future. With a growing population demanding better living conditions, it is crucial to minimize the impact on the environment, and the panel will explore how research can play a crucial role in meeting these demands.

Join us to learn more about the innovative research initiatives at NYUAD and how they are contributing to the achievement of a sustainable future.
