Research to Impact Series: Expanding Cornell’s impacts on energy transitions: Five key priorities for the Croll Professorship

This seminar will discuss five key priorities for the Croll Professorship that can help maximize Cornell’s impacts on sustainable and equitable energy transitions. The first is enhancing bridges between technology innovation and sustainable systems analysis research, which can both accelerate solutions and advance Cornell’s global thought leadership in technology and policy assessment. The second is convening multi-disciplinary efforts to quickly advance understanding of social equity, economic, and environmental justice benefits of technology transitions, which remain critical yet understudied policy goals. The third is to support efforts to identify and seize unique and leading-edge terrain for Cornell/Atkinson in an increasingly crowded global energy/climate institution space, which can help maximize return on investment. The fourth is enhancing knowledge products, strategic outreach, and partnerships that can reinforce this unique positioning. The fifth is creating enabling environments for cutting-edge student research and learning, which can simultaneously advance the aforementioned research, convening, positioning, and knowledge leadership goals, while creating unique training models that increase the impacts of Cornell graduates. Together, pursuit of these priorities can create systems of virtuous cycles within the institution that can help amplify the impacts of Cornell/Atkinson in global energy transitions.
