Welcome to
SESYNC
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) brings together the science of the natural world with the science of human behavior and decision-making to find solutions to complex environmental problems. We convene science teams to work on broad issues of national and international relevance, such as water resources management, land management, agriculture, species protection, among other areas of study. By supporting interdisciplinary science teams and researchers with diverse skills, data, and perspectives, SESYNC seeks to lead in-depth research and scholarship that will inform decisions and accelerate scientific discovery. SESYNC is funded by an award to the University of Maryland from the National Science Foundation. Learn more about SESYNC.

Keeping Collaborations Moving Forward—Even in an Online World

Over the past several months, SESYNC’s research teams have met the challenge of shifting their in-person collaborations entirely online with ongoing flexibility, resilience, and commitment. Below, PIs from several of our Pursuits and Graduate Pursuits share the practices they’re using to keep their projects moving forward and to maintain strong connections among their team members.
