STFC Batteries AGM

Wednesday 31st May 2017 - Thursday 1st June 2017


We were pleasantly surprised with the incredible response for this conference, selling out in less than two days and making us the Glastonbury of Electrochemical Energy storage conferences. This is no doubt due to the very high quality of speakers we have (recently added to the pyramid stage: Prof George Crabtree, Dr Lee Johnson, Dr Nuria Garcia-Araez and Prof John Irvine).

However, as is often the case with this event, there will likely be some drop outs and it may be possible that we can squeeze a few extra spaces in – therefore if you are still interested in attending and didn’t get a ticket, I urge you to add your name to the waiting list on the eventbrite page (https://stfcbatteries2017.eventbrite.co.uk). We will use this to allocate any spaces that become available. Likewise, if you have a ticket and you find you can no longer attend, please cancel the booking on eventbrite so that we can allocate your ticket – no matter how late you drop out.

The 5th Annual Meeting of the STFC Batteries Network with take place at the Cosener’s House in Abingdon on the 31st May – 1st June. Building on the successful combination of high quality talks and a relaxed, collaborative environment of previous years, we once again aim to bring together the best researchers from the UK and further afield in the area of electrochemical energy research.
