TEDx 2015: It is time to go small and nuclear

Date
21/03/2015
Location:
Great Hall, Aston Webb
Description
The UK is wrestling with its energy policy as it struggles to reduce its dependence on coal and imported gas in an attempt to boost low carbon generation and energy security. Offshore wind is now making a significant contribution. Shale gas, though not low carbon, is poised to make an impact. However, both are not without challenge; wind is intermittent and shale gas will require carbon capture and storage on a scale which remains to be demonstrated and credible.

TEDx 2015: Superconducting Seaweed: Adventures in Green Nanotechnology

Date

Location:
Great Hall, Aston Webb
Description
Imagine the word 'chemistry' for a moment. You probably have a picture in your mind of someone in a white lab coat and goggles with brightly-coloured solutions bubbling away in front of them. There are almost certainly some toxic signs around! If you visit most chemistry research centres then you will probably see a lot of chemists that fit this picture quite well.

Education and Training in Nuclear Decommissioning

Date
16 - 17/04/2015
Location:
University of Birmingham Business School
Description
The need to recruit and maintain qualified personnel is a known concern in the nuclear sector with the issue particularly acute for nuclear decommissioning. A clear global positioning of the European Union in this area will be beneficial, will stimulate export and will promote high safety standards. The University of Birmingham, in association with the European Commission's Joint Research Centre are holding a joint seminar to address the following questions in relation to education and training in nuclear decommissioning.
