Scientific meeting

Location

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Overview

Theo Murphy meeting organised by Professor Saiful Islam, Professor Peter Bruce FRS, Professor Richard Catlow FRS, Professor Jenny Nelson FRS

Crystal structure of a fast-ion conductor for fuel cells

This meeting will focus on the challenges posed by battery, fuel cell, solar and thermoelectric technologies and will aim to identify the specific needs in terms of materials development for these technologies to have wider spread deployment. It will explore our current individual technologies, and set the priorities for research in materials for energy technologies in the coming decades.

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.
