IGERT Conferences

April 12 - 13, 2012

The fellows at the Clean Energy for Green Industry IGERT at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) hosted a workshop focusing on the effort to reset our economy from conventional to renewable technology. The aim of the workshop was to foster communication and collaboration between energy and sustainability IGERTs from around the country. To this end, the two-day conference featured several key-note speakers, panel discussions, a poster session and several small break-out sessions.
