Heida Diefenderfer

July 2011

Invited to National Academies Keck Futures Initiative conference

Heida has been invited to the 9th Annual National Academies Keck Futures Initiative (NAKFI) conference, Ecosystem Services: Charting a Path to Food Security that is a Win Win for People and the Environment.

The goal of NAKFI is to facilitate a climate for conducting interdisciplinary research by inviting approximately 150 researchers from diverse backgrounds to an annual "think-tank" style conference. Attendees have the opportunity to compete for seed grants designed to enable the pursuit of connections and ideas spurred by the conference.
