Abstract / Description: 

Stanford grad students, postdocs, faculty and staff interested in energy: Join us Mondays (June 30-Aug. 11) as the Global Climate & Energy Project (GCEP) grad student/postdoc speakers from different technical areas give presentations - both accessible and informative - about their innovative clean energy research. Learn about cutting-edge breakthroughs directly from students leading efforts in areas such as solar, bioenergy, hydrogen, carbon-based energy systems, electro-chemistry and energy storage.

Share you feedback with the speakers and you could win a gift card to Coupa Cafe.

Top speakers selected by GCEP will be honored at this year's GCEP Research Symposium (Oct. 14-15) and will have the opportunity to present at the conference.
