The official launch of the North East Centre for Energy Materials (NECEM) takes place at the Research Beehive, Newcastle University, on Friday 16 March 2018.

The North East Centre for Energy Materials (NECEM), formed between the universities of Newcastle, Durham and Northumbria, unites the breadth of expertise present at the three sites to tackle industry-led challenges in energy materials. The centre is a platform to facilitate cooperation with local, national and international industrial partners.

The objectives of NECEM are to:
· lead, along with our partner centres, the UK's research into energy materials;
· create a synergy between engineers, chemists, biologists and physicists;
· identify new areas of research through engagement with industry;
· deliver breakthroughs in understanding interfacial and surface processes leading to the discovery of new functional materials and methods for energy generation, capture, storage and distribution.

The day, hosted by the management committee; Prof. Ulrich Stimming (Director), Dr. Elizabeth Gibson, Dr. Thomas Penfold, Dr. Chris Groves, and Dr. Neil Beattie, will commence at 10:30a.m. with presentations followed by the official opening of the centre by Chi Onwurah, MP for Newcastle Central & Shadow Minister for Industrial Strategy, Science & Innovation. An afternoon poster session will lead us into the evening for an informal dinner and drinks reception ending around 7pm.
