Global Cambridge: Achieving zero-carbon flight and land-based power
Tuesday 14 July 2020, 5.00pm to 5.50pm BST
There is a broad-scale need for the aviation and power generation sector to decarbonise rapidly. This need has grown exponentially in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, which has ground global air travel and laid bare the environmental challenges of returning to the old business as usual.
Join Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Professor Andy Neely OBE, who will moderate a conversation with Professor Robert Miller, Director of the new Whittle Laboratory, and Cambridge alumna Dr Masha Folk, now working at Rolls-Royce. Together they will discuss the ways The new Whittle Laboratory (and the National Centre for Propulsion and Power) will scale world-leading capability in rapid technology deployment to around 80 per cent of the technologies required to decarbonise aviation and power generation.
It is a vision of national and global significance, which would put Britain at the heart of a zero-carbon future for flight and power.
Following presentations by the speakers and the panel discussion, you can join the conversation through a real-time Q&A session.
You can take a look at our first digital Global Cambridge, featuring the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen J Toope, with Dr Seán Ó hÉigeartaigh, and Dr Kanta Dihal from Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, on YouTube.
