The WVU Shale Gas Network forum brings together academia, industry, government agencies, and other stakeholders interested in shale gas research to advancement the responsible development and use of this abundant resource. The Shale Gas Network hosts three to four afternoon forums throughout the year featuring guest speakers and WVU researchers followed by informal networking gatherings featuring research poster presentations by WVU faculty and collaborators. The forums allow participants to:

  • network to gain new ideas, meet new researchers
  • learn about funding opportunities
  • receive updates about broader university shale gas initiatives
  • meet colleagues in other disciplines who share common interests, and,
  • present shale gas research results during informal poster sessions.
