Welcome to the 2018 UQEI Energy Express Seminar Series! We again look forward to providing you with an opportunity to continue your participation at informative and topical seminars that will open and promote discussion amongst us all.

In offering the Energy Express Seminars, we aim to bring multidisciplinary research capability together on some of the significant energy challenges facing today’s world and connect that capability with industry and government partners. The series is designed to provide a regular forum to present and discuss a range of energy-related topics and themes. They are open events, and bring together industry, government, and the broader UQ community including academics, researchers, students and alumni.

Dates for most of our 2018 Seminars have been booked so be sure to reserve these in your calendars now! All seminars will start at 6.00pm, with light refreshments to follow.

Guest speakers will be announced in due course.

This year we especially welcome our Master of Sustainable Energy students - the timing of our seminars is scheduled to coincide, where possible, with the eight core teaching blocks that they will undertake throughout the year.

We encourage and welcome comments and feedback and look forward to engaging with you on global energy challenges.
