Centre of Advanced Materials for Integrated Energy Systems proudly hosts the

UK Redox Flow Battery Network Meeting and Workshop, 2018

19 July 2018, Maxwell Centre, Cambridge


We are pleased to announce that CAM-IES will sponsor and host the Second Annual Meeting and Workshop of the UK Redox Battery Flow Network on 19 July 2018. This workshop focusses on all UK redox flow battery research and development across academia and industry. It is aimed at establishing a vibrant, collaborative and productive RFB network in the UK.

This year the invited speakers are the four awardees of CAM-IES funding for short projects that emerged following the last UK RFB network meeting. The speakers will deliver talks on the progress on their funded projects.

The objective of the workshop session is to identify the RFB community's strengths and weaknesses nationally, and to plan the transformation of challenges into opportunities. All discussion groups will be mixtures of industry and academia. By the end of the workshop we hope to have made steps towards a strategic plan for the RFB Network. The schedule is flexible in the afternoon to allow time for discussion.

Invited lectures from leading international RFB experts in academia and industry, poster sessions, business card sessions, interactive workshops and more are packed into this one-day meeting and workshop!

Registration and attendance are free, and fully supported by CAM-IES. Register for this event at the EventBrite link below.
