let's talk research banner

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Florida Atlantic University has moved many of its public talks, presentations and seminars to a virtual platform. So, we put this site together, dubbed Let’s Talk Research, where you’ll find opportunities to connect with faculty as they engage with the Florida Atlantic community and discuss their research, scholarship and creative activity.

You can sign up for an upcoming presentation or listen to recorded talks, presentations or conversations.

Sharing Stories

From artists to scientists, from innovators to creators, they all have one thing in common – a story that could impact our future through discovery, invention, art or literature.
