Delegates will be able to view pre-recorded videos from each project ahead of the conference. Watch them to learn about the aims of the projects, the challenges currently preventing commercialisation of technology in the area, case studies of how Faraday Institution researchers are delivering state-of-the-art research relevant to industry and putting them onto a path toward commercialisation. The project spotlight Q&A sessions are an opportunity for delegates to ask questions of our Principal Investigators.
