As part of the recently established Knowledge Partnership with Conservation International (CI), ASU’s Center for Biodiversity Outcomes (CBO) is thrilled to announce six of CI’s leading scientists will join ASU as part-time Professors of Practice (PoPs) by January 2017. CI-CBO Professors of Practice will be on campus for at least two months per year and available to engage with CBO Faculty Affiliates in research and teaching. ASU students will also have new applied research and field opportunities across CI’s global field sites. We expect that this novel approach to co-production will not only spur innovation, but will lead to measurable and practical solutions to pressing conservation challenges. Stay tuned for upcoming networking events to engage with the PoPs!
