Research Landscapes

What is Research Landscapes?

At Utah State University Research Landscapes, we provide an entry-point for state and community decision-makers across the Wasatch Front to connect with the researchers who are investigating the most critical issues facing the state.

Why should I attend?

As the state’s land-grant institution, Utah State University is uniquely situated in the state to help solve Utah’s land, water, and air challenges. During the event, the presenters will share data-driven discoveries to provide the state’s decision-makers and stakeholders with tools and insights to address these critical issues.

What is the event like?

Each event will feature a live presentation that highlights the researcher and their work, followed by a question-and-answer session with the presenter.
