SCI Electrochemistry Postgraduate Conference (SCI-ECP) 2021 will provide PhD students and Post-doctoral researchers with the opportunity to present their work in the fields of electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering.

Key themes will be:  Electrochemistry and Industrial Applications of Electrochemistry, Corrosion, Batteries, Semiconductors, Fuel cells and Sensors.

It is a free event and open to postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers nationally/internationally as the event this year will be run online as a webinar this year. 


This event will be suitable for PhD students/Postdocs to showcase their work, network and gain an idea on what research is being carried out in their respective field.

Speakers from industry will showcase technologies, market and pitch new techniques that would be relevant to all people working in this sector. Therefore, it will be useful for early and mid-career researchers and members from industry.
