David Bradford Energy and Environmental Policy Seminar Series

This seminar series is named after the late Prof. David Bradford (1939-2005), who previously served as a director of the Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy (STEP) Program at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. Bradford, a professor of economics and public affairs, helped initiate and organize this seminar series in the early 2000s, inviting speakers to share their research on science policy topics. C-PREE continues to organize the seminar series each year, highlighting scholars and practitioners from various fields working on critical research related to environmental and energy policy. Since its inception in Fall 1999, this series has hosted hundreds of speakers who are influential in science & environmental policy.

The seminar series is co-sponsored by the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI).

At this time, only Princeton University ID card holders and invited guests may attend in person. All others are invited to watch the seminars over livestream on the MediaCentral site.

Recordings of past talks can be found on the archived events pages in this website or on our YouTube channel.
