This UVM Research Week event highlighted opportunities for UVM and the Vermont Clean and Resilient Energy Consortium (VCREC) - a statewide group of Vermont utilities and related industries committed to advancing the state’s clean energy goals through use-inspired research - to engage the next generation of clean energy innovators. How can Vermont's clean energy economy serve as an innovation workbench for the nation? How can we provide young alumni opportunities to contribute to the clean energy economy? You heard from champions of the clean energy transition, as well as from young alumni members of the UVM Foundation's NextGen community employed in the energy sector.

The second half of the event allowed students to network and explore job opportunities directly with these innovators.
