Joel L. Morrison from UCFER’s Operations Management Team represented UCFER at the 42nd Clearwater Clean Energy Conference in Clearwater, Florida. He presented a paper titled “University Coalition for Fossil Energy Research,” which he co-authored with Bruce G. Miller and Chunshan Song. In addition, Morrison showcased the coalition with a poster in the exhibition hall. The objective of the paper and poster were to promote the coalition, both to universities and industries with interests similar to those of the coalition. This was important as the Industrial Advisory Board is being established and industry participation in supporting coalition research is welcomed.
