SUBJECT: Name Change of the Center for Energy and Combustion
Following consultation with the Academic Senate, the name of the Center for Energy and Combustion Research (CECR) has been changed to the Center for Energy Research (CER).
This name change reflects the merger of the activities of the current CECR group with the activities of the Fusion Energy Research Program. It is expected that the merger of these two programs into one ORU will foster greatly increased interdisciplinary interactions among UCSD faculty, research staff, and students, and that this will provide a new vehicle for developing future additional dimensions of energy research, including energy policy research. Forman Williams will remain as Director, and Charles Baker has been appointed Deputy Director.
