The Atlantic Council's Future of Iran Initiative invites you to a panel discussion on US-Iran science exchanges. The discussion coincides with the publication of a new book, US-Iran Engagement in Science Engineering, and Health (2010-2016): A Resilient Program but an Uncertain Future by Glenn Schweitzer of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine. Over the past two decades, the Academies, in conjunction with several US universities, have identified key areas of mutual benefit, between Iran and the United States, including seismic science and engineering, conservation and the effective use of water resources, and resilient cities. Political developments in both countries, however, threaten the continuation of this important work.

The discussion will be held on Sept. 8, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Atlantic Council. The event is open to press and on the record.
