Innovations in Climate Resilience Conference 2024 (ICR24)

Presented by Battelle, in partnership with several U.S. National Laboratories and the Wilson Center, ICR24 gathers creators and leaders across industry, academia, and government to share and inspire science and technology solutions for addressing climate change.

8:00am – 7:00pm ET


Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center


The Wilson Center is partnering with Battelle for the third annual Innovations in Climate Resilience Conference. The urgent need for scalable solutions to meet the challenge presented by the climate crisis has inspired this year's theme, "Solutions for Scaling Change."

ICR24 gathers environmental professionals, scientists, researchers, students, and leaders from the White House, Department of Energy, National Labs, Department of Defense, industry, and academia to enable innovations in climate resilience. This community comes together to discuss transformative ideas and explore real solutions to address climate change threats to our environment, health, communities, national security, and economic well-being, from the perspective of three overarching themes—adaptation, mitigation, sustainability. 

The program includes an evening opening keynote and reception, a day and a half of technical presentations and panel discussions, an evening poster reception, and a closing reception. A schedule with exact times will be confirmed closer to the conference.
