Research and Technology Forums

Highlighting cutting edge research by academic and industry leaders,
along with market drivers and trends

The R&T Forum series is brought to you by the SyracuseCoE Partner Program.
February 2015 R&T Forum on Technology Highlights from the ARPA-E Summit and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
February 23, 2015 | 3:30pm-5:00pm | SyracuseCoE Headquarters, Rm 203​
· Chetna Chianese, SyracuseCoE Research Fellow
· Tim LaBreche, SyracuseCoE Associate Director for Technology Commercialization 
· Ryan Falkenstein-Smith, Research Assistants, Syracuse University Combustion and Energy Research         Lab
· James Shomar, Founder and CEO, Solstice Power
The U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) has hosted the Energy Innovation Summit in Washington, D.C., for the past six years to bring together the very best minds in business, academia, and government to advance cutting-edge technologies that could fundamentally change the way we generate, use, and store energy. Having just returned from the Summit this month, R&T forum speakers will discuss SyracuseCoE's engagement at the conference including a recap of how energy industry experts, thought leaders and decision makers are thinking about America's energy challenges and how to move these innovations out of the lab and into the market. Additionally, Tim LaBreche will share highlights of a recent visit to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

December R&T Forum on The Sistine Chapel: Innovative HVAC Solutions To Preserve Michelangelo's Frescoes

December 16, 2014 | 3:30pm-5:00pm | SyracuseCoE Headquarters, Rm 203​



Joseph Godlewski, Assistant Professor, Syracuse University School of Architecture

Bill ChadwickPE, CEM, LEED BD+C, Sr. Building Systems Engineer for United Technologies Corp., Building & Industrial System


Professor Godlewski examined the socio-political context of these groundbreaking pieces of art and architecture during the Renaissance and their renewed importance today. Bill Chadwick discussed​ Carrier Corporation's recently completed innovative heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) solution for the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. The new system will help preserve Michelangelo's masterpieces against deterioration caused by the increasing numbers of visitors.


The forum was moderated by Bess Krietemeyer, Assistant Professor, Syracuse University's School of Architecture
