Residency Videos

In the summers of 2015 and 2016, Enhancing Life Scholars spent two weeks together in Banff and Berlin, at residency seminars designed to facilitate collaborative research as well as individual work time. The videos filmed there provide a great overview of the project and its public relevance. Check them out to get a sense of what our Capstone Conference will present!
