The Importance of Basic Sciences in Addressing the Global Energy Crisis


As a founding partner of the International Year for Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development 2022, ICTP will present a series of panel discussions and keynote talks to take place throughout the year.

You are cordially invited to the first such event, on 18 May at 15:00.

The event is titled 'The Importance of Basic Sciences in Addressing the Global Energy Crisis' and will focus on how basic science can help to bring renewable energy conversion to the forefront of the world's future energy landscape.

Panelists include Richard Catlow, an expert in solid state chemistry and materials science at University College London (and co-president of the InterAcademy Partnership), and Patchanita Thamyongkit, an expert on photovoltaics from Chulalongkorn University, Thailand (online participation).

The discussion will be moderated by ICTP Postgraduate Diploma Programme alumnus Stephane Kenmoe, now a scientist at the University of Duisburg-Essen whose research focuses on computational descriptions of photocatalytic water splitting.
