Fall 2013 CITRIS Research Exchange Seminar Series

Fall 2013 CITRIS Research Exchange Seminar Series

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. 

This semester marks the start of a new format for CITRIS seminars. The i4Energy seminar series will be included in the Research Exchange seminar series and held mainly on Wednesdays (some i4Energy seminars will take place on a Friday). This format gives us a 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.
