National Postdoc Conference 2023

National Postdoc Conference 2023

C-DICE and Loughborough University are hosting the National Postdoc Conference in 2023 as part of Postdoc Appreciation Week. The conference will be held at Loughborough University on 18 September for a pre-conference networking evening and on 19 September for talks, workshops, networking and a celebration of postdocs!

The conference theme of “Transitions and New Horizons” will provide a platform to celebrate the impact and contribution of postdocs in changing the world for the better. It will bring together the postdoctoral community for building networks, sharing experiences, developing careers and equipping postdocs to thrive in their current role and beyond.

CircularChem Postdoc Preetam Sharma will be presenting at the Conference. The title of his talk is “Earth Abundant Cu-Sn Catalysts for Selective Electrochemical Conversion of CO2 to CO”. The presentation will include the electrochemical routes to decarbonization and its scale-up potential as well as how electrochemical technologies can help in decarbonization. Preetam will also be highlighting why the technology development is so challenging and sometimes is the bottleneck in implementing new processes.

The conference programme is available here.
