resilient Adaptive Climate Technology (reACT) ThinkTank

The founding five academic units (Engineering, Architecture, Libraries, Agriculture & Natural Resources, and Education) have agreed to advance beyond the already remarkable accomplishments of Team Maryland’s successes over the past two decades of transdisciplinary competition in the United States Department of Energy Solar Decathlon (SD). We intend to leverage our internationally recognized success into an on-campus resilient Adaptive Climate Technology Living Laboratory & ThinkTank, a site for deep integration across disciplines as experts from different areas pursue common research challenges, and increasingly intermingle and integrate their knowledge, theories, methods, data, research communities and languages with new frameworks, paradigms or even disciplines formed from sustained interactions across multiple communities. We intend to extend the knowledge, expertise, and information to various stakeholders throughout the state of Maryland and beyond through various UMD outreach services, not the least of which is the University of Maryland Extension Service.
