New Chances and Perspectives: The Partnership between Northeastern University and University of Freiburg

In April 2019, Northeastern University and University of Freiburg signed a Memorandum of Understanding, paying the way towards a partnership between the two universities. The international cooperation focuses on the highly interdisciplinary field of resilience research. Jan Frederick Unnewehr, Research Associate at University of Freiburg and a key member of the new partnership, will be presenting his views on the difficulties of resilience research in power systems through a case study on Puerto Rico’s Energy Systems.

The event will be held from 12 pm- 1 pm at Renaissance Park, room 310.

RSVP is required. For registration information click here.
