Joint UK Solar Fuels Network-SuperSolar Early Career Researcher Meeting

Webinar overview: To achieve the true potential of solar energy as we move towards Net-Zero, researchers working towards the solar-driven conversion of abundant resources into renewable fuels are working ever more closely with those addressing the formulation, characterisation and development of photovoltaic cell materials and architectures.

This free web symposium seeks to stimulate synergies between Early Career Researchers within the fields of solar energy materials development, solar energy conversion and solar fuels synthesis to build collaborations required to meet existing and future technical challenges.
