UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The renovation of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute's second-floor suite is nearing completion. The project, which began in fall 2020, will transform EESI's main suite into an open collaboration space with plenty of room for researchers to meet with colleagues, a glass-walled conference room and a coffee area.
EESI leadership plans to celebrate the project's completion, scheduled for Feb. 2021, with a virtual reception. The time and date of the reception will be announced at a later date.
