The Current: January with ISEN
January 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm| Free
The Current is Smart Grid Cluster’s collaborative monthly happy hour and networking series. Every month, we welcome entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, nonprofits, technologists, and investors to Coalition: Energy’s downtown coworking space to network, discuss, and celebrate the buzzing energy innovation community in Chicago.
On January 5th, we are excited to co-host with The Institute for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern University.
The Institute for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern’s (ISEN) mission is to advance global sustainability and energy solutions through transformational research, interdisciplinary education, and public engagement.
With a University-wide charter to facilitate multidisciplinary discovery spanning natural and social sciences, engineering, business, law and communications, ISEN supports a wide range of Northwestern faculty and students. In order to maximize the scale and impact scope of our research and programs, ISEN works closely with a range of corporate, civic, academic, and non-profit entities on behalf of the University. ISEN’s curriculum, which leverages intensive project- and laboratory-based learning, industry adjuncts, professional development seminars, and global exchange programs, prepares Northwestern students to be future sustainability and energy leaders.
