Details of recent and forthcoming events at which members of the Faraday Institution participated.
Royal Institution Events
We rounded off our series of three public outreach events at the Royal Institution this year with the highly entertaining “Future of Mobility” on 10th September, which was hosted by Robert Llewellyn of The Fully Charged Show. Other speakers were Richard Morris of Innovate UK, Christian Bedford of Williams Advanced Engineering and Alison Park of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). We had many comments afterwards that they appreciated the inclusion of the social science perspective that Alison brought to the event. View the video. Videos of our other Royal Institution events can be viewed here: “The Battery - Inside Out!” (84,000 views to date), "How Will Batteries Change Our World?” (27,000 views)
Neil Morris presented at the following events:
