From the coral reefs in the deep ocean to the wetlands of the Everglades, the FIU Institute of Water and Environment (InWE) is advancing the science and technology needed to address complex water and environmental issues locally, nationally and globally. InWE supports interdisciplinary research, interactive education, and public engagement by linking top scientists with thought-leaders and business professionals, as well as local, state, and federal collaborators to foster environmental sustainability.
Our research crosses the physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, public health, law, engineering, computer sciences and architecture in an effort to preserve freshwater and marine ecosystems for future generations. Our cross-cutting programs work across each of our centers, as well as perform their own research and engagement initiatives.
