Center Talks and Presentations

The Center continues its emerging tradition of hosting regular “noontime seminars” as an opportunity for Center staff, students, and affiliates to share research in an informal setting.  We also sponsor other “occasional seminars” by CU students and staff not affiliated with the Center, as well as guest speakers from outside the university.

Please visit the Center’s speaker’s page for lists of upcoming talks, details about speakers, abstracts, and, frequently, copies of their Powerpoint presentations.

All talks are open to the public and held in the conference room at the Center for Science and Technology Policy. Click here to see a map.
