The world is undergoing an historic energy transition from traditional fossil fuels to more sustainable forms of energy affecting technology, the environment, economies, and geopolitics. This landscape affords unprecedented opportunities for collaborative scientific research to answer global challenges with innovative and competitive solutions. Each year at the Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy, participants from around the country converge in Chicago for two weeks where they engage energy and sustainability topics in a living-learning environment and work collaboratively for the duration of the program on a comprehensive, interdisciplinary research project. Check out our first prize winner here, and all the other outstanding projects on our video page.
