The Initiative for Sustainable Energy (ISE) announced the inaugural Seed Research Awards for 2023. This represents a total investment of over $400,000 by Brown University in early-stage innovative faculty research with the potential to attract significant external funding, and have a broad impact in the area of sustainable energy.
The newly launched Initiative for Sustainable Energy will serve as a campus hub for driving technological advances in sustainable energy and preparing the next-generation of leaders in net-zero-carbon energy solutions.
Brown University’s Otis E. Randall Professor of Engineering Nitin Padture has been elected to the class of 2023 Fellows by the Materials Research Society (MRS). Padture was cited ‘for sustained and distinguished contributions to materials research in the areas of advanced composites, high-temperature coatings, and emerging photovoltaics, and outstanding leadership and service to the broader materials community.’
