Research Uncorked is a monthly speaker series featuring informal talks by leading scholars and scientists from the University. Typically hosted at Ironhand Winebar in South Bend, the series has temporarily moved online because of the coronavirus.

April is a special Earth Day edition featuring Paul Kempf, Notre Dame’s assistant vice president for utilities and maintenance. Paul’s presentation is titled “Getting Greener: Notre Dame and Carbon Reduction” and will focus on how the University has been able to reduce its carbon emissions by 50 percent (compared to 2005 levels) and what it’s working on now in the areas of fuel switching, renewable and recoverable energy, and conservation.
