The Climate Systems Engineering initiative (CSEi) supports Field Building Workshops, which are held at UChicago 3-4 times per year. The workshops help define the research agenda for climate systems engineering.

Field Building Workshops take place over 1.5 to 3 days and typically involve 10-20 people. Workshops may bring together faculty, postdocs, graduate students, international visitors, government officials, industry professionals, representatives of non-governmental organizations, and others who could bring expertise and perspectives needed to define research directions for climate systems engineering. Workshops will receive funding and logistical support from the CSEi.
