Workshop Details
Solar Solutions to Energy and Environmental Problems
07/08/2019 - 07/12/2019
Meeting Description:

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers in diverse fields who are studying ways to optimize the capture and utilization of solar energy. Invited speakers are working in areas such as nanotechnology, bio-inspired energy conversion, production of solar fuels, photovoltaics, and photosynthesis. Rather than a series of unrelated research talks, the workshop will be organized around a set of challenges to the utilization of solar energy. Each invitee will make a brief, relevant presentation during a session that features one of these themes, followed by group discussions. By bringing together workers in various fields of solar energy research, the workshop will foster collaborations and inspired approaches to facing the global challenges that have resulted from our reliance on fossil fuels.


Registration fee includes 3 lunches.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.

TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
