WMG Powering Up Aerospace
The University of Warwick, CV4 7AL

Battery Safety and Standards. Battery powered systems are a key element of a low emissions future. With battery capability increasing, it’s vital that we gain a deep understanding of battery safety at cell, module, pack and system level so that systems can be rolled out at scale. This is already a topic of extensive industrial and academic research in the electric vehicle sector and we wish to impart this knowledge to the aerospace sector. With the support of partners, WMG has developed this Battery Safety seminar to disseminate learning and bring insights from expert researchers, thought leaders and practitioners in the field.

Warwick Engineering Society conference - Voyage: the future of transport

Free places for sixth-form students

We are pleased to offer free places for sixth formers at the University of Warwick student Engineering Society conferences. Year 12 or 13 students interested in engineering or science careers will learn about cutting-edge research, areas of development in industry and paths to engineering careers.

This conference will focus on the future of travel and transportation and the companies shaping this future. The conference will have three main elements, beginning with talks from leading industry experts to highlight the cutting-edge research and developments currently taking place in the field. The talks will be followed by a networking lunch where attendees will have the opportunity to talk in a more personal way with companies and speakers and allow a break for an interactive demonstration of new technology changing our current perceptions of transportation. The conference will conclude with a chaired panel discussion with a mixture of prepared and audience questions.

Battery & Energy Storage UK 2019
The Slate, ‍University of Warwick Campus, Coventry, CV4 7SH, United Kingdom

Runs from Wednesday, December 04 to Thursday, December 05.

Uniting Industries and Unveiling Applications across the Energy, Transportation & Industrial Sectors

As the energy storage market has evolved, the UK’s energy grid has become smarter and new technology has continued to emerge. Yet, regulatory issues and market reshaping continues to cause uncertainty for many. But uncertainty leads to innovation.

Businesses must be ready to adopt new ways of thinking in both upstream and downstream energy storage. From the latest science in battery creation to the latest developments in EV manufacturing, the market is changing, and you need to stay one step ahead. Whether your interest is in automotive developments, cross-sector collocation with local governments or innovation in domestic storage, you can find what you are looking for at Battery & Energy Storage UK 2019.

SCiP Networking Event-Creating the Supply Chain for an 'ACES' world
IIPSI Seminar Room, WMG, University of Warwick

We are on the cusp of a fundamental change in the way that we live our lives. The digital revolution is enabling us to rethink the way in which we approach economic growth in a more sustainable way. This is challenging many of our current paradigms. We are shifting from buying products to services. To share rather than to own. To design for durability and the circular economy rather than obsolescence. These trends are driving a revolution in the way that we view mobility. It is creating a vision of mobility that is Autonomous, Connected, Electrified and Shared (ACES). This session explores the ways in which we develop the supporting business models and supply chains to create the ‘ACES’ world.
