NREL/ESS Soup & Science Fall 2018 Seminar Series Schedule

seminar lecture hall

Seminars are held each Friday from 12-1pm in Room 345 of the Smith Building, the new Natural Resources Building.** Please join us each week to learn from the best and brightest at the cutting edge of sustainability and ecosystem science.

This semester, the NREL/ESS weekly Departmental Seminar Series is joining forces with the graduate student-led Soup & Science seminar series to bring you a weekly set of scientific talks. We will host researchers from CSU, invited speakers, and senior graduate students nearing completion of their degrees. Speakers highlight original research that connects the departmental foci of social, physical, and ecological sciences. Volunteers will provide soup every week. All seminars are free and open to the public, although donations are accepted for soup.
