UMBC to co-lead new Baltimore Social-Environmental Collaborative with $2.3M grant

The U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) is funding three Urban Integrated Field Laboratories including the new Baltimore Social-Environmental Collaborative (BSEC). According to the DoE, Urban Integrated Field Laboratories (Urban IFLs) are designed “to advance the science underpinning our understanding of the predictability of urban systems and interactions with the climate system, and to provide the knowledge and information necessary to inform equitable climate and energy solutions that can strengthen community-scale resilience across urban landscapes.” BSEC is set to receive $24.5 million in funding overall.
