The NHERI Summer Institute is a free event for early-career faculty, NHERI Graduate Student Council, K-12 educators from the San Antonio area, engineers, social scientists, and researchers to learn more about the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) community. During the three-day Institute participants will have opportunities to meet with NHERI site representatives, K-12 educators, NSF CAREER Awardees, and a program director from the National Science Foundation. This creates a platform to discuss research grant proposal ideas and potential partnerships.

The NHERI Summer Institute will be held in person at the University of Texas at San Antonio's Downtown Campus. Participants will learn about:

-The NHERI program mission

-NHERI network site capabilities

-NHERI network resource requests

-The NHERI Science Plan

-NSF Grant proposal writing

-Broader educational impacts of research

-Outreach focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion Community networking and mentoring Technology Transfer

-K-12 Educator Training (for K-12 educators)

The Summer Institute will host representatives from the 11 universities and 12 NHERI sites. Selected in-person attendees will meet with representatives and learn about:

The Wall of Wind at Florida International University Real-time Multi-Directional Natural Hazards Simulation Facility (RTMD) at Lehigh University The O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory at Oregon State University The NHERI SimCenter at University of California, Berkeley The Center for Geotechnical Modeling (CGM) at University of California, Davis The Large High Performance Outdoor Shake Table (LHPOST) at University of California, San Diego The CONVERGE Facility at University of Colorado Boulder The Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Experimental Facility at the University of Florida The Large-Scale Mobile Shakers at University of Texas at Austin The NHERI Cyberinfrastructure and Data Management team at University of Texas at Austin in collaboration with TACC The Rapid Response Research Facility (RAPID) at University of Washington.

Representatives from the NHERI Network Communication Office, NHERI Science Plan, NHERI Technology Transfer Committee, User Forum, and the NHERI NSF Program Director will also be on hand to host workshops and guide your group's mock proposal development.
