Where’s My Jetpack? Topic: Clean Energy

April 21, 2017 • 6 PM – 7:30 PM, Seigle Hall room L006, Danforth Campus

ProSPER is proud to announce the next chapter of our seminar series, “Where’s My Jetpack? Why Innovation Takes So Long.” This April we are inviting experts to discuss innovation in clean and renewable energy. What are the challenges researchers face when trying to develop new renewable energy technologies? How do clean energy and law intersect? Why does development take so long and why is it so expensive? What types of environmental policies surround these technologies?

Come be a part of this exciting and important discussion!

In attendance will be experts Maxine Lipeles, Director of the Interdiciplinary Environmental Clinic, and Professor Jay Turner, Member of the EPA’s Scientific Advisory Board.
