Research Café on Carbon Neutrality (1) Climate Policy

The 17th Research Café will be held on 17 Nov 2021 (Wed). The series theme is Carbon Neutrality, which features a wide spectrum of studies by postgraduate students at CUHK that address various aspects of carbon neutrality, or net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, for managing climate risks. Each research café has a focused topic to facilitate discussion and collaboration. The focused topic of the coming Research Café is Climate Policy. The Library is planning to organize three more Research Cafés on the following topics in 2022 – 2023:

  • Climate science: From origin to impacts 
  • Energy transition: Renewables, fossil fuels, electricity market, geopolitics 
  • Carbon storage: CO2 capture, utilization and storage, ecosystem and carbon storage 

We are very honored to invite Prof. Yuan XU, Associate Professor from the Department of Geography and Resource Management, to be the moderator of the event.
