The National Institute for Energy Ethics and Society (NIEES)
The National Institute for Energy Ethics and Society (NIEES) is an exciting one week seminar for 15-20 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in energy research to examine ethical and societal issues associated with US energy choices. Seminar participants will attend lectures and discussions, work on individual and group projects, and develop plans for activities at their home institutions. They will visit energy research facilities to talk with researchers and managers about the directions and ethical aspects of their work. A description of the Institute's curriculum is available now.
Seminar faculty are well-known energy scientists, engineers, and policymakers at academic and other institutions, as well as social scientists and ethicists who have studied and published about alternative energy futures and the social and historical influences that shape trajectories of energy use and development.
The seminar will take place April 8-12, 2013 at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. Travel expenses to and from the seminar and a stipend will cover expenses for 15 participants.
UPDATE: All available positions are filled, and applications will no longer be accepted.
