Details and Speaker Timetable
Background of the Networking meeting
The aim of this half day meeting is to showcase the latest development and capabilities of UCL researchers and UK companies in Energy storage to enable future team building in response to wholesale changes in the energy storage research and commerce that are happening in the UK.
What is covered?
Anything under the “energy storage” banner is covered, advanced materials for batteries, supercaps, diagnostics, methods of imaging or characterisation, investigations into battery failure, to public policy, smart grids, etc.
What does the event look like?
The event will consist of short talks from key UCL and industry attendees on issues related to energy storage (optional lab tour of energy related facilities and lunch for industry only). For this particular event, there has been a recent announcement from the government on Electric Vehicles, therefore, this year there will be a focus on this. However, this does not exclude other applications from being presented. There will also be a series of short flash presentations to allow a wider cross section of capabilities to be presented, for example in UCL or other technology providers or specialists in expertise or techniques which may be relevant to energy storage research.
The event will include and close with a poster session and wine/cheese in which there will be an opportunity to network with colleagues. It is hoped that a short booklet of attendees will be produced before the day, so all attendees are asked to fill the short proforma which will be provided to all attendees on the day. If you have registered, can we thus ask you to fill in and return the Networking Proforma to us (please send to which is obtainable at the following link
The Networking Event: This is a Networking Event for UCL academics (and UCL researchers) and Industry or those who wish to join the Network. Tickets allocated on first come first served basis.
Background on UCL: UCL is London's leading multidisciplinary university, with more than 11,000 staff and 38,000 students from 150 different countries. Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class, religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men. UCL has traditionally been strong in the area or electrochemical technology; there are currently over 30 academics working in this area or developing materials for electrochemical systems. The event is a mechanism to raise awareness of the energy rage research going on at UCL between research groups and externally as well as acting as a mechanism for encouraging collaboration and formulation of grant ideas and proposals in response to the government’s forthcoming industrial strategy on energy storage.
