Students, staff, and faculty from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science took part in Virginia Sea Grant’s 4th Annual Project Participants’ Symposium last week, sharing their efforts to protect and restore coastal Virginia during a daylong event at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond.
How can scientists get their points across without glossing over or distorting the precious data that took so long to collect? This topic has been up for discussion year after year, and for good reason—it remains a major challenge.
The annual Project Participants’ Symposium enables VASG partners to network and learn while helping to plan the future of VASG. About 100 researchers, students, and other partners gathered in Richmond for the Symposium, which was followed by the annual Seafood & Wine Reception.
The Project Participants' Symposium is open to all individuals whose work affects coastal Virginia and who have worked directly with Virginia Sea Grant through our research, extension, education, or communication activities or other partnering. The Symposium offers opportunities to learn about VASG projects and network with fellow project participants. As an attendee of the Symposium, you are also invited to the Annual Seafood & Wine Reception which is attended by leading state and federal policy
