Eleven UNL students are participating in a two-month program in Vienna, Austria, where they are furthering their knowledge and experience in resilience and adaptive management of natural resources, and the human dimensions of managing those resources.
The program is offered by the Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT), which is the National Science Foundation's flagship interdisciplinary training program, educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers by building on the foundations of their disciplinary knowledge with interdisciplinary training.
The students participating in the Vienna program are:
Anil Giri (Ag Econ), Danielle Haak (SNR), Denise Marie Weide (EAS), Donald Pan (SBS), Hannah Birge (SNR), Maggi Sliwinski (SNR), Michelle Hellman (SNR), Nathan Rossman (EAS), Noelle Hart (SNR), Victoria Chraïbi (EAS) and Ilonka Zlatar (SNR).
The students arrived in Vienna in September and are keeping a blog to share stories about their experiences abroad. To read the blog, visit http://igertaustrianadventure.blogspot.co.at/.
