Symposium on Digital Water
With the University of Minnesota’s assets and expertise, we are extraordinarily well positioned to shape the frontier research at the interface of data and water sciences. We brought together experts across the University system to discuss our strategic position, and to guide an emerging partnership between the Water Resources Center and Minnesota Supercomputing Institute to expand capacity in the digital water space.  Discussion summaries will be shared with University administration, the Water Council, and symposium participants.
