Lunch by the Water

The UF Water Institute Lunch by the Water is a monthly seminar series that allows graduate students to present their ongoing research to a broad and diverse audience of water scientists. While enjoying lunch, attendees have a chance to network with Water Institute faculty and other graduate students, fostering an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas among colleagues with a mutual interest in water-related issues.
