Expert Workshops and Research Studies

Many of the grand water and food systems challenges that J-WAFS seeks to address can’t be solved by a single individual or a single institution.  Collaboration is critical, therefore J-WAFS leverages MIT’s convening power to produce international-scale expert workshops and research studies that bring together some of the leading researchers and institutions together to develop solutions.

Examples of our work in this area

“[Addressing food systems challenges] is not easy or fast. It takes a lot of investment by a core group of people who are ready to be in a room together for a significant amount of time.”
