Basic Energy Sciences (BES) Office Hours

Join us on the third Thursday of each month, 2-3 pm Eastern Time, for virtual office hours to learn about our programs and ask questions. Researchers, educators, and research administrators from all institutional types are encouraged to join. A primary goal of the virtual office hours is to broaden awareness of our programs; no prior history of funding from DOE is required to join. Program managers will be available to answer questions. Registration is required for attendance. Please use an institutional email address to complete the registration process. A confirmation email containing information about joining the Office Hours session will be sent to the email address provided. Future virtual office hour topics will be posted here. Closed captioning will be available.
