Spring 2014 Research Exchange Seminar Series

This is the second semester for the new format for CITRIS seminars. The i4Energy seminar series will be included in the Research Exchange seminar series and held on Wednesdays. This format gives us chance to focus on each of our initiatives in turn, bringing challenging speakers to discuss their research and join in an ongoing discussion at CITRIS.

Free and open to the public, the Research Exchange Seminar Series is a weekly roundtable of presentations and discussions that highlights ways to frame and tackle societal-scale research issues. Registration is requested for lunch at UC Berkeley. Please register for each event at the links below or visit http://citris.eventbrite.com for all event listings.
