Register Today for the OHIO Shale Policy & Technology Symposium 2018

Mar 23, 2018 | Events, Newsletter |

Ohio University’s Russ College of Engineering and Technology, Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, and College of Arts & Sciences invite you to attend the Second OHIO Shale Policy & Technology Symposium on April 4-5, 2018. The event is open to the public and will be held at the Ohio University Dublin Integrated Education Center in Dublin, Ohio. Complimentary registration is available for student, academic, government and nonprofit attendees. See the registration website for details.

The 2018 Symposium builds off of an inaugural event last year in Athens, Ohio which convened 80+ attendees. The focus of these events, as well as our multidisciplinary research work at Ohio University, is to identify ways in which regional communities and businesses can attract, develop, and retain the benefits derived from shale development activity using innovative policies, partnerships and technologies for a strong energy future.

This year’s Symposium is organized into two distinct days:

  • Optional pre-trip, Wed., April 4: Round-trip transportation will be provided for our attendees from Dublin to tour our energy research labs in Athens, Ohio. (Or meet us there!)
  • Full day symposium, Thurs., April 5: Experts from around the state and region will join our researchers on a dual-track agenda highlighting policy and technology developments in shale, as well as plenary sessions on topics such as managing risk and the impacts of global markets on Ohio’s build out. We are delighted to host Commissioner M. Beth Trombold, Vice-Chair, Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO), as our Thursday morning keynote.
  • Networking breaks, a student poster session and catered meals provided.
  • See the current agenda at: https://www.ohio.edu/ce3/news-events/events.cfm.

Join us to be part of the discussion about the region’s energy future! More information can be found at https://www.ohio.edu/engineering/shale18.  Questions? Contact Elissa Welch, Project Manager, at welche@ohio.edu or 740-537-0112.
