The NREL/ESS Fall Departmental Seminar Series is a weekly set of scientific talks given by speakers from CSU and other institutions around the country. Speakers highlight original research that connects the departmental foci of social, physical, and ecological sciences. A subset of our seminar series will be followed directly by a catered reception for the invited speakers. All seminars are free and open to the public. Please join us each week to learn from the best and brightest at the cutting edge of sustainability and ecosystem science.
