Discussion meeting

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Saiful Islam, Professor Peter Bruce FRS, Professor Richard Catlow FRS, Professor Jenny Nelson FRS

The provision of clean sustainable energy is one of the greatest challenges of our time. New low carbon technologies for energy conversion and storage require fundamental advances in the science of energy materials. This meeting will bring together world-renowned experts in the field including batteries, solar power and fuel cells, and will set the agenda for future energy materials research.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.

The Department of Chemistry will be hosting it's 3rd Annual Chemistry Networks Event, which will provide the opportunity to get to know the Department better. During the afternoon you will be able to hear an overview of the Department,  the Research and the different ways it collaborates with industry. Following an introductory welcome from the Head of Department, academics representing it's five Research Interest Groups (RIGs) will present various examples of how it engages with industry, that will include showcasing the brand new Chemistry of Health building. You will also hear from each of the RIGs' student winners from the Departmental Graduate Symposia.

To close the day, there will be a drinks reception, at which our students and postdocs will present posters in all scientific areas and you will have the opportunity to mingle with the Department in an informal setting.
