Kentucky DOE EPSCoR: Growing Energy Research and Collaborative Networks in Kentucky
Presentation & Discussion
Friday, March 11, 9:00 – 10:00 AM
Ernst Hall Room 212
The DOE-EPSCoR program is a program of the US Department of Energy to stimulate competitive research in selected states. The state KY-DOE-EPSCoR program is responsible for coordinating submissions from the state of Kentucky to the national DOE EPSCoR program, and more broadly for encouraging competitive energy-related research in Kentucky.
At the beginning of this seminar, a brief presentation will overview the national DOE EPSCoR program and the goals of the KY-DOE EPSCoR program to grow more energy-related research in the state. After the presentation, the seminar will move to a discussion format. Attendees will be asked to introduce themselves and briefly summarize their research areas. A discussion will then consider ways the KY-DOE EPSCoR program can encourage collaborative energy-related research networks and facilitate more competitive energy-related research activity in the state.
