Energy Institute to host faculty workshop on NETL’s crosscutting research programs

Research

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- The Energy Institute invites WVU faculty to participate in a workshop on crosscutting research managed by Briggs White of the National Energy Technology Laboratories.  Two major elements of the portfolio will be presented: “Materials and Advanced Manufacturing” and “Water Management and Wastewater Treatment.   Detailed information below. 

  • RSVP's should be sent to:  Marje.Riivald@mail.wvu.edu.  Please indicate which sessions you will be attending and if you would like a box lunch*. (Vegetarian lunch available.  Just let us know in your RSVP.)
  • Faculty bios required by Noon, Jan 6.  See below.
  • Agenda below.

What:  NETL Program Overview Meeting - Materials and Advanced Manufacturing / Water Management and Wastewater Treatment
Presenter:  Briggs White, NETL Technology Manager
Date: Wednesday, January 8, 2020
Time:  Starts promptly at 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Where: Room 120, Advanced Engineering Research Building, WVU Evansdale Campus                     

  • 10:00 a.m. - Materials and Advanced Manufacturing
  • 12:50 p.m. - Water Management and Wastewater Treatment

 The format for both sessions will include:

  • Opening presentation by Briggs White on NETL programs (30 minutes)
  • Response by WVU provided by designated researchers from WVU respective research units to summarize the expertise of their unit (around 30 minutes)
  • An approximately equal amount of time for roundtable discussions with all participants – the NETL team that accompanies Briggs and our researchers in the theme area of the workshop. Others not working in the theme area of the session are welcome to participate as observers or contributors as well

Resumes and Laboratory Overviews

As we did in 2018, I encourage you to contribute a two page biography about your research expertise and interests that we can give to our NETL visitors.  I will print your contribution in the front and back side of a single page of paper to have a stand-alone advertisement about you to share with NETL.  Two pages maximum.

For the bio information, I suggest that you include data like:

  • Current position at WVU, including history if you wish; a photo of you would be nice
  • Educational background and research summary of projects that you did in earning your college degree(s)
  • Current areas of interest and expertise
  • Description of your laboratory if you have one.  Include pictures if you can.  (Briggs is short on time since he is coming to and from Pittsburgh in questionable winter weather. We will not have time to schedule tours of WVU labs.)
  • Publications of note
  • Other topics you think pertinent
  • REMEMBER – ONLY TWO PAGES !

Send your bio info by Noon, Monday, January 6th.  See the section below for mailing information.

Lunch, RSVP, Biographical Information

We will provide a box lunch for those who RSVP that they are coming for lunch.  We would also appreciate an RSVP of your intention to participate in the workshop if you don’t intended to attend the lunch.  Please indicate the sessions you will attend so that we can arrange the room appropriately for roundtable discussions with seating for all.

Responses should be sent to:  Marje.Riivald@mail.wvu.edu; 304 293-6631

Marje receives mail at the NRCCE building, Room 113.  She is splitting time at the Energy Institute main building at Suncrest Center, but mostly at NRCCE.  Sharon Belmaggio retired from the Energy Institute at the beginning of December.  Marje is covering tasks that Sharon did in arranging meetings.
