Partner with us on solutions-oriented research
AGCI partners on solutions-oriented research efforts in a variety of ways:
We advise and conduct research for cities, water utilities, and federal agencies on how to use climate change information appropriately and navigate climate adaptation. Examples include:
- AGCI’s work with the Water Utility Climate Alliance
- Assisting the City of Aspen in evaluating climate change impacts
- Supporting production of the SECURE water report for the Bureau of Reclamation
We work with organizations that align with our mission to advance global change science and solutions, helping to incubate new ideas and reduce administrative effort so others can get more done:
We partner with others to write grants and find the funding to achieve shared goals:
We support networks to help connect researchers and practitioners. Examples of networks we help lead include:
- Mountain West Climate Services Partnership
- Science and Society at the American Geophysical Union
- Science of Actionable Knowledge
- Science for Climate Action Network
We also provide several opportunities for individuals to engage directly with us:
- High school and college students: Gain field work experience as a summer intern on a variety of projects with the Roaring Fork Observation Network (paid positions are advertised January–March).
- Post-graduate students or early professionals: Join AGCI for a one- to two-year postgraduate Fellowship conducting research at the intersection of research and practice (paid positions are advertised in January).
- Academic researchers/science professionals: Take a sabbatical with AGCI or collaborate with us on research grants. If you’re interested in learning about our affiliate program, contact us.
- Lifelong learners: Learn about global change science from international researchers at AGCI’s public lectures, held both online and in Aspen, Colorado.
