Note, November 2014: It has been some time since GCRI has hosted online lectures. We may revive them at some future point. Meanwhile, we are focusing on other activities.
GCRI hosts occasional online lectures on global catastrophic risk research topics. Some of the lectures are public, as part of GCRI’s education efforts. Others are private, for internal discussion purposes. The lectures provide opportunities for researchers to share their work with GCRI and, if they would like, with the broader public.
If you are interested in presenting your work to GCRI, please contact Seth Baum (seth [at] gcrinstitute.org).
