SolidState ionics is the fundamental underpinning science behind many of the electrochemical technologies needed to achieve net zero, such as fuelcells, electrolysers to produce green hydrogen, Li and sodium batteries for transport and grid storage.

The focus of this conference will be how to promote basic research, materials discovery and materials processing for application in the electrochemical devices urgently needed to achieve the green energy transition. We will also focus on the advanced characterisation and modelling techniques necessary to support and accelerate this process. Finally we will cover the application in to a range of devices including novel applications in electronics.

There will be tutorials for research students and postdocs new to the field of solid state ionics, which will be held on Sunday the 14th of July starting at 10:00am. The tutorials will be organised into two parallel sessions, one dealing with the fundamentals of solid state ionics and an introduction to SSI devices, the other will cover advanced characterisation techniques covering surface and bulk analysis.
