Prices start from £0.00


This event is aimed at bringing together ECR researchers from academia and industry to promote the work and ideas of future thought leaders in the energy materials sector. It is our aim that we will foster connections and networks among the early careers members of this field and beyond. The event will feature invited speakers from leading academics and from some of the UK companies pioneering the work into developing exciting new energy technologies. There will be an accompanying online poster session and opportunities for ECRs to submit abstracts for oral presentations, with prizes available for the best of each.

Contributions are invited from early stage researchers and PhD students working in the materials science field focused on energy materials to submit an abstract for an oral presentation.  

A concurrent twitter poster session will be held, starting on 12 July 2021 via our handle @SCI_Materials using the hashtag: #SCIMatPoster.


An abstract of maximum 250 words (250 words does not include Author names, affiliations, references or figure captions) indicating title, authors, institution and preference for presentation option (Oral presentation or virtual poster) should be sent to conferences@soci.org by Monday 14 June 2021 with the subject line “SCI materials for energy technology conference - abstract submission”. Presentation slots are inevitably limited and will be allocated to achieve a balanced programme – researchers will be invited to contribute a poster if submission is not chosen for oral presentation. Prizes will be awarded for the best presentation and poster. 


This event is for early career researchers in academia and industry working in the field of materials science for the energy sector.


 The full programme will be confirmed in due course.
