  • 27Oct

    The School of Technology is establishing a Special Interest Group (SIG) in ‘The Built Environment’. This will feature a mixed academic/industry panel.

    The first The Built Environment SIG meeting will take place on Wednesday 27 October 2021.

    Please email to confirm your attendance and to receive meeting details.


    Special Interest Groups

    1. Hard to Decarbonise Technologies (H2D)
    2. Light Harvesting (LH)
    3. The Built Environment (BE)

    The Light Harvesting SIG will form one of three SIGs on the theme of Decarbonisation led by School of Technology. These will establish a broad academic-industry network to promote collaborations, access to equipment and capabilities, and facilitate better access to funding. 

      There will be two discussion meetings per term in each SIG, held virtually in 2021. The format of each meeting will vary depending on topic, but each will generally be run by an academic lead and a panel of internal and external experts to facilitate a wider discussion and identify areas to be progressed through focussed meetings and/or new projects.

      Speaker: Henning Schwabe from BASF

      The “Green Transition” towards a sustainable circular economy is a goal widely accepted yet hard to realize. A global network balance of mass and energy flows could accelerate the transition.

      Through Bigger Picture Talks, we are inviting thought-leaders from across the world, who are driving significant advances in our impact areas of energy, health and sustainability, to share and discuss their work with us.

      Henning Schwabe is leading BASF ’s innovation program into digital technologies to reduce sustainability impacts. He has a master’s degree in chemical engineering with a focus on process systems engineering.

      See the bigger picture: join the discussion.

      The next CUETS event will be a lecture by Prof. Maximilian Fichtner, leader of the Solid State Chemistry group at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm.

      The HIU research group Solid State Chemistry is an interdisciplinary group in which chemists, physicists, and engineers are active. The focus of their research is on the battery systems to come after the lithium-ion ones, referred to simply as "batteries beyond lithium". Parallel to this work, new and alternative approaches are being developed to overcome the obstacles to lithium-free batteries.
