MWA Accelerator Project Symposium

The Monash-Warwick Alliance (MWA) accelerator project, entitled "Towards Better Electrocatalysts for a Greener Future", is an international collaboration between leading electrochemistry groups at the University of Warwick (UK), led by Prof Patrick Unwin and Monash University (Australia), led by Prof Jie Zhang. The project aims to rationally design new and efficient materials for renewable energy storage systems, developed through understanding the correlation between material properties and electrochemical activity.

The symposium will feature talks by world-leading researchers from Monash University, as well as discussions on the progress made from both institutions in regards to the project. Tea and lunch will be provided on the event (please confirm your attendance by 12 pm on Thursday (27th June)) and the programme schedule is as follows:

09:10 – 09:40
