The Showcase will take place at the University of Birmingham, from 11am on Wednesday 13th April until 3pm on Friday 15th April 2011 and bring together approximately 150 people with invited speakers from academia, industry and the Government, including international colleagues from the USA, Canada, Russia, Japan, Korea, Switzerland and France."
This Symposium will have 5 plenary speakers and 18 keynote speakers who will draw from their experience and showcase the current position of hydrogen development in the UK and internationally. Confirmed invited speakers include:
• Mr Pierre Gauthier (Commercial Director, Air Liquide Hydrogen Energy, Sassenage Cedex, Canada)
• Prof Jong Won Kim (Director of Hydrogen R&D Centre, Daejeon, Republic of Korea)
• Prof Andreas Züttel (EMPA Materials Science and Technology, Dübendorf, Switzerland)
• Mr Ian Williamson (European Hydrogen and Bio Energy Director, Air Products, UK)
• Dr Etsuo Akiba (Kyushu University, Japan)
• Prof Peter Edwards, FRS (University of Oxford, UK)
• Prof John Irvine (University of St. Andrews, UK)
• Prof Paul Ekins (UCL, UK)
• Prof Rex Harris (University of Birmingham, UK)
We would like to acknowledge financial support for the Showcase from the UK Energy Research Centre's Meeting Place and the University of Bath via an EPSRC Pathways to Impact Award.
Specific objectives are to:
1. Disseminate outputs from the UK Sustainable Hydrogen Energy Consortium (UK-SHEC) and other UK hydrogen research consortia via presentations and poster sessions
2. Identify key areas of research on hydrogen and sustainable energy during group discussion sessions.
3. Promote the social and economic implications of transitions to sustainable energy systems via presentations and during an open session for the public;
4. Identify opportunities for multi-disciplinary research and policy issues in hydrogen energy.
5. Encourage effective knowledge transfer between academia and industry, business, policy makers and the public, initially via presentations by representatives from each of the sectors.
6. Develop collaboration between national and international research consortia and projects to ensure work is not replicated and to identify potential innovative research for the future
Call for Posters is now closed
Showcase organisers invite submissions from hydrogen energy researchers, in particular post-doctoral staff and PhD students, for a poster session at the International Hydrogen Research Showcase 2011. The poster session will provide opportunities for you to present work on aspects of hydrogen energy (please see below for specific themes) and enable you to showcase your research to an audience of UK and International leading energy researchers and policy makers, your peers and the general public. The session will be on Wednesday 13th April in the evening, and will be open to the general public. The venue will be the University of Birmingham: http://www.Birmingham.ac.uk/index.aspx
For further details and guidelines on how to submit a poster, see the Poster tab.
