Special Event

Hertz Topical Forum: Energy

We are proud to announce a special topical forum focused on the future of energy — supported by the generosity of Eric and Wendy Schmidt — that will happen right before the 2024 Summer Workshop, on July 31, 2024, at the beautiful Mont-Tremblant Resort in Quebec, Canada.

The topical forum will focus on the future of energy, with AI, national security and climate change as subtopics. This event will be open to all, with a participation stipend, and will bring together students with early, mid-, and senior career Hertz Fellows in collaboration with other leaders in government, industry and academia to explore and scale solutions to our most pressing energy challenges. We hope you'll join us for a challenging and enlightening event!
