IAS Fellow's Public Lecture - Small solutions for big problems: Nanoscience contributing to artificial photosynthesis

28th February 2019, 17:30 to 18:30, Sheraton Park, Ustinov College, Professor Jurriaan Huskens (University of Twente)


The climate change we are currently experiencing requires solutions at the fronts of alternative energy sources, alternative raw materials, and circular design of process and products. The energy transition is currently in full swing, but fully converting to climate-neutral solutions brings about new challenges. Some of these challenges will require better technology, but also societal acceptance and economical viability are important aspects. This lecture will focus on nanoscientific and nanotechnological aspects of some of the challenges and their possible solutions, in particular for creating efficient solar fuel devices. At the same time we’ll zoom out by reviewing and addressing some aspects of scale, economy, and the global nature of the problem.

This lecture is free and open to all.
