In a further effort to broaden and concurrently ensure a steady development of our UREM conference we have now also decided to co-organize the conference together with research groups at Uppsala University, in specific together with groups within the consortium for Artificial Photosynthesis (CAP). This means that the UREM conference 2017 will be held at Umeå University, while the UREM 2018 conference will be held at Uppsala University.
This year will focus on artificial photosynthesis, and solar fuel production from algae. At our conference we aim to create opportunities for meetings between researchers from different research areas, as well as create meetings between students and established researchers. In line with this, UREM 2017 will contain four specific activities, besides the traditional lectures and key-notes; i) we will have a public outreach lecture adapted for students in grade eight and nine, and their teachers for; ii) we will have a plenary lectures, presenting an overview of the challenges and potential on all areas of renewable energy iii) the conference will be scheduled so that we can integrate students from the Civil engineering program in Bioresource engineering, and Civil engineering program in Energy technology, and iv) each lunch will be organized with “meet a researcher table”, allowing graduate and undergraduate students to meet established researchers.
