UK Nanotube Collaborative Inaugural Workshop
Fri 24th Mar, 2017
Date: March 24th 2017 @ 9:30 AM
Location: Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI), Lecture Theatre, Room 001
Swansea University Bay Campus, Swansea, Wales, UK.
Purpose: To build community, linking interests between
industry and academics. To foment and promote
partnerships, and foster research ideas that are
relevant to industry. To establish collaborations with the
intention of leveraging future research funding.
This is a collaborative workshop on the problems associated with the synthesis and applications of carbon nanotube fibres for the transport of electricity, and towards the use carbon based materials for smart grid applications.

During this workshop, we will explore the challenges and opportunities associated with the synthesis and applications of carbon nanotubes for the transport of electricity, and associated technologies for the smart grid of the future. The purpose of this workshop is to:
- Build community, linking interests between industry and academics
- Foment and promote partnerships, and foster research ideas that are relevant to industry
- Establish collaborations with the intention of leveraging future research funding
Topics to be discussed include:
- Fabrication of electrical cables, and devices, using carbon nanotubes (CNTs)
- Commercialisation of CNT products
- Application of CNT devices to the smart grid
If you are planning to arrive on the evening before the workshop please join us for an informal networking dinner. Make sure to note in your registration if you have any dietary or accessibility requirements.
Special Issue of Journal C:
Participants are invited to submit an article to a special issue of the journal C, entitled "Carbon-Based Materials for Electrical Power Transmission and Smart Grid Technologies". The aim of this special issue is to present solutions to global energy demands using carbon-based materials within the smart grid system, whereby key technical components are improved or replaced by carbon based materials. Deadline for submission is June 30th, 2017. Indicate your interest when registering for this conference.
