Labs21 Center of Excellence for Marine-Based Laboratories: University
Wednesday, October 22
From international centers for world-renowned research to small
community-based educational facilities, more and more marine laboratories
are being established worldwide. This has resulted in a new challengeensuring
that these highly specialized facilities are designed, engineered,
and managed in a way that reflects the spirit of their broader environmental
mission. To help meet this challenge, the University of Hawaii is
proposing to establish a Center of Excellence in Sustainable Laboratories
for Marine and Watershed Studies.
This special breakfast session explored the creation of this Center.
By taking advantage of the University's unique location, island
culture, and academic resources, the Hawaii Center would serve as
a model of sustainability, promoting a lighter, restorative impact
for marine-based laboratories on their surrounding environment.
The Center would also set a higher standard for sustainable marine-based
laboratoriesboth at the University and throughout Hawaii and
the Pacific regionand help achieve of a more sustainable future.
