Under the Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton-Bhabha Fund, IISER Pune and the University of Glasgow will be holding a workshop called New Electrochemical Technologies for Sustainable Fuels, Chemicals and Industrial Processes at IISER Pune, Pune, India, from 2nd-5th December 2019.
The workshop aims to bring together teams of early career researchers (ECRs) from the UK and India to share research expertise and develop collaborations in the field of electrochemistry and electrochemical technologies.
There will be a particular emphasis on how electrochemistry can be used as a sustainable route by which to obtain fuels (e.g. by carbon dioxide reduction), chemicals (e.g. nitrogen reduction to ammonia or electro-synthesis strategies) and materials (e.g. more sustainable extraction/refining of metals from their ores by electrolysis).
The workshop will run over 4 days, from 2nd December – 5th December 2019 inclusive. The 34 ECR participants will give 25-minute talks (20+5 minutes for questions) and the mentors and co-organisers will each have 50-minute slots (45+5 minutes).
- Eligible ECRs should be within ten years of obtaining their Ph.D., although allowances will be made for career breaks. Participants must also have links to the UK or Indian higher education or research institution.
- Although most participants are likely to come from within the academic sector, we would also encourage applications from ECRs working in industrial R&D. Applications are invited from researchers in all relevant disciplines.
