Dear Participants,

On behalf of Northwestern and Cornell Universities, we are pleased to welcome you to a Workshop of Academic Energy/Sustainability/Environment Centers, which will gather directors of top U.S. academic-centered initiatives, institutes or centers for sustainability, energy, and/or the environment. 

At this workshop, we hope to create a collegial forum to share best practices and lessons learned, discussing areas of possible collaboration (including cross-institutional funding opportunities), teaching and education, and ongoing or potential projects with national laboratories.  

The invitation-only group of leaders of cutting-edge energy and sustainability research institutions represent a truly unique cohort of subject-area expertise across the broad spectrum of relevant academic sustainability, energy and/or environmental concerns and opportunities.

Please join us for the discussion-based and networking sessions as well as insightful panel and speaker presentations. We hope you will arrive with an open mind, ask questions while you are here, and leave feeling engaged and informed.

We look forward to seeing you on October 5-6!

Sincerely,

David C. Dunand
Co-Director of the Initiative for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern

Mark Ratner
Co-Director of the Initiative for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern

Frank DiSalvo
