April's Seminar: A Conversation About...University/Industry Collaborations in Renewable Energy Research
UNH is at the forefront of climate change studies and renewable energy research. For April's seminar, we've invited UNH's Martin Wosnik to our discussion about university/industry collaboration in renewable energy exploration.
Martin is an associate professor of mechanical engineering with research interests in fluid and thermal sciences with an emphasis on renewable energy, including ocean renewable energy, turbulent flows, high-speed hydrodynamics, and more. Martin has worked with several industry partners on renewable energy research projects throughout his career. He will share his insights on the benefits and challenges for both parties when pursuing such partnerships, and discuss the importance of industry/academic collaborations in developing sustainable energy sources that will protect our planet for future generations.
