October 13, 2021

Friday, October 15
9:00 - 10:00am EST

We are pleased to welcome two Mandela Washington Fellows who recently completed their virtual Professional Development Experiences with the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics to join a panel with experts from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The panel will focus on the research and work experiences of the panelists and discuss the barriers and obstacles to develop renewable energy, energy efficiency, and advanced smart power technologies in developing countries.

We welcome audience members from across the campus to the panel and encourage you to submit questions to the panelists. Where possible, we prefer that you submit questions ahead of time, so we can better organize the panel.
