Paving the Way: California's Road to Vehicle Electrification


As you may be aware, a multi-unit strike by the UAW of Postdocs, Academic Researchers, Student Researchers, and Academic Student Employees is taking place across the University of California system, which includes Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.


This strike is especially meaningful to the Midday Science Cafe organizers, as some of the event organizers and participants are represented by the UAW. Additionally, part of Midday Science Cafe's mission is to showcase the efforts and achievements of early career researchers - including graduate students, postdocs, and other early academic employees - who are crucial to the mission of each institution.


The Midday Science Cafe organizers have chosen to postpone Thursday's event until there is a resolution between the University of California and the union membership. We will reach back out when the strike has been resolved with a new date for this talk on vehicle electrification. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
