N-EWN Partnership

IRIS is a founding partner of the Network for Engineering with Nature (N-EWN), along with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering With Nature Initiative.

N-EWN is an active community of researchers, practitioners and educators who are addressing the major infrastructure challenges facing our society while creating opportunities that align ecological, social and engineering processes to achieve multiple societal benefits.

Focus areas include developing rigorous methods and standards to advance the field of natural infrastructure (NI), fully accounting for the costs and benefits of NI systems, monitoring NI performance and learning by doing, and policy aspects of NI.
