An overview of our seminars:

1. Corporate Seminar

This is an annual event in which energy corporates will be invited to hear about the research being conducted at the CEER. At these events, a number of CEER researchers - students, postdocs, and professors - will pitch their research interests and topics. In doing so, we hope to be able to demonstrate the relevance of our research and to attract support. The previous corporate seminar took place on Wednesday 14 June from 14:00 - 18:00.

2. Academic Seminar

This is a faculty-wide platform through which researchers will be asked to present a ‘submitable’ paper on topics of interest to CEER researchers. The previous academic seminar took place in the spring of 2017.
