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.
