The Energy Impacts Webinar Series: Community Impacts of Energy Development, hosted in partnership with the North Central Regional Center for Rural Development (NCRCRD) hosts Jeffrey Jacquet, Ohio State Univ., School of Environment and Natural Resources, Jeremy Weber, Univ. of Pittsburgh and Julia H. Haggerty, Montana State Univ., to discuss Synergies and Innovations in Coordinating Energy Impacts Research: The Case of Shale Development Impacts.
This webinar kicks off a series of webinars on opportunities for synergies and cross-boundary learnings about community impacts of energy development. Specifically, each speaker will share a brief synopsis of approaches and key questions that their respective disciplines—sociology, economics and geography—bring to the case of impacts from shale oil and gas development. Each of 3 speakers will briefly share key developments and new research from across their disciplines while highlighting opportunities for emerging or new interdisciplinary approaches to solve key problems.
The North Central Regional Center for Rural Development is hosting this webinar series on Community Impacts of Energy Development. The webinar series is presented by the NSF-sponsored Research Coordination Network, energyimpacts.org that focuses on synthesizing, coordinating and learning across social science disciplines that study the community impacts of energy development. A diverse team of national experts from political science, public health, geography, sociology and economics that makes up the steering committee of the Energy Impacts RCN will contribute to the webinar series as webinar hosts and speakers.
