First JPL-UCLA Planetary Science Workshop a Great Success

Posted on May 29, 2015 in News

Researchers from JPL and UCLA came together on May 27th to celebrate the adoption of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to promote cooperation between scientists at both institutions.  This first joint JPL-UCLA planetary science workshop under the auspices of the MOU was attended by over ninety scientists and members from both institutions (approximately half from JPL and half from UCLA).  The workshop featured 9 invited science talks and 35 posters in two poster sessions.  UCLA’s Dean of Physical Sciences Joe Rudnick and JPL’s Chief Scientist Dan McCleese both signed the MOU, and each institution has a copy.  The workshop was a great success and undoubtedly marks the beginning of many productive collaborations.
