Can you imagine a world without batteries?

On Friday 18 March 2022 the Faraday Institution partnered with the Royal Institution to host an interactive careers event aimed at young people aged 13-17, to showcase the array of skills needed, and wealth of exciting careers available in the battery sector, that can positively contribute to the green revolution as we seek to go fully electric. Chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, robotics, mathematics, law, computing and electronics, all play a part in seeking to find pioneering solutions to the challenges faced in making batteries cheaper, lighter, safer, more powerful, longer lasting and more recyclable.

The event featured talks in the Royal Institution theatre by Fran Long, Head of Training and Talent Development, Faraday Institution, Dr Billy Wu, Senior Lecturer, Imperial College London and a Q&A with four talented Faraday Institution PhD Researchers as they shared experiences of their research, what inspires them, and the rewards of working in this sector:

  • Aaron Wade, University College London
  • Daisy Thornton, Imperial College London
  • Kieran O’Regan, University of Birmingham
  • Giovanni Maddalena, University of Edinburgh
