The Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science (HITS) are pleased to host this workshop which focuses on SDG7: Affordable and Clean Energy ‘Nanostructured Functional Materials for Sustainable Energy Applications’

In recent decade, the increasing energy demands and anthropogenic environment pollution has been created an enormous fright to us due to the growing global warming and related climate threats (natural disasters). Hence, to solve the energy and environment issue due to excessive carbon emission, it necessary to explore the sustainable green energy applications. In this scenario, the development of advanced materials for next generation energy applications is of utmost importance, with great potential coming from the development of nanostructured functional materials. In this workshop, we will focus on SDG7 to develop nanostructure functional materials for sustainable energy applications to as a remedy for global warming. This will contribute to the potential contribution towards sustainable green energy applications to protect our earth and secure our future on this planet.

The workshop takes place on Friday 11 March 9:00am – 3:15pm (IST) book your place here.
