As an innovation center for nature based solutions, the Lab plans to convene a conference each year allowing the Lab to formally discuss coastal research with other Boston Harbor and global researchers and interested stakeholders. It will also foster coordination and collaboration among other relevant research activities in Boston Harbor.

In addition to discussions about the research, conveners will focus a special emphasis on place-based community science, education, and community participation.

The conference will involve the Lab’s Scientific Advisory Committee and will be coordinated with The Boston Harbor Islands Symposia intended to bring the science of Boston Harbor to park staff, volunteers, and the public.
