2020 was an important year for HARC, and despite all the challenges the year offered, our research and programs continued to pursue science-backed solutions for the most significant problems in our region and around the world. Even during trying times, possibilities are endless, and our team successfully launched multiple programs in all research areas comprising air quality, clean energy, climate, geospatial and analytics, and water quality.
An inspiring environment shapes HARC’s research, and our team includes intelligent and conscientious people genuinely excited about what they do. This culture, this day-to-day experience, is what truly enables incredible things to happen.
