Please join us for our November faculty coffee!
The Institute of Government and Public Affairs invites you to our next faculty coffee on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM CT, a hybrid event at our Urbana office and on Zoom.
For this coffee, IGPA will be hosting scholar Jonathan Coppess, who is the Principal-Investigator on the Farm Bill Mapping Initiative, a Research Scholar Initiative funded by IGPA. The Farm Bill Mapping Initiative uses existing public data to visualize agricultural and conservation policies in support of policy design efforts in the 2023 Congressional Farm Bill reauthorization process. The project further combines statutory and regulatory interpretation with data and computation from the Policy Design Lab at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. Eventually, the resulting public-facing mapping effort will demonstrate the statutory and regulatory provisions of the Farm Bill.
Jonathan first presented preliminary findings and plans for the project in October 2022 and we are excited to have him back to give an update.
