Past Seminars


CPIP Seminar Schedule, 2022-2023 


October 4, 2022, 12:30 - 1:30PM
CPIP Seminar: Welcome back lunch
Social Sciences Plaza Lower  

CPIP strives to facilitate interdisciplinary research collaborations among its affiliates. During CPIP’s first seminar of the year, reconnect with colleagues and meet new CPIP affiliates. All or some attendees will be asked to give a short informal pitch about a potential interdisciplinary research project relevant to the CPIP community. Feel free to reach and dream a little. The goal is to stimulate ideas, as well as interest from other CPIP affiliates, not to commit to a project.

This will be an in-person, interactive, social event. There will not be an external speaker.
