It’s conference season! Issy attended the Faraday Institution Conference 2023 this September, and here we bring you a flavour of the three days and the chance to hear some of the delegate’s thoughts directly. The Faraday Institution is the UK’s research institution to further battery research. Since its creation in 2017, it has been responsible for a thriving ecosystem of projects within academia and industry, as well as an interlinked community of individuals and organisations all over the UK and abroad. It funds PhD programmes, undergraduate summer internships, and many research and industry projects within the UK.
