DEI’s headline remit throughout the ten years since its foundation has been ‘science and society’. DEI promotes world leading science, social science, humanities and engineering, and brings them together to develop synergies wherever they are found. DEI has been the leading truly interdisciplinary energy research institute in the UK, if not internationally. Today we celebrate ten years of bringing people together, and thinking differently about energy. Registration is essential for catering purposes via EventBrite.
