Solar Fuels Network Newsletter

Issue 20, February 2019


Jenny Zhang

Welcome to the 20th issue of the SFN newsletter! In this issue, we are delighted to announce that SFN members can apply for conference/research funding assistance, outreach assistance, collaborations, and more (link to section) via SuperSolar. The program for our annual SFN Symposium in March is now available (link to PDF); it’s shaping up to be a rich program with many international speakers. We hope to see many of you there - please make sure you have fully registered if you are coming (link to section). The Faraday Discussion has now reached registration capacity, but there is still room in the Doppler Symposium (link to section). There are PhD studentships available for October 2019 (link to section), and many solar fuels related national and international meetings taking place in 2019 (link to section).

Funding Opportunities for SFN members from SuperSolar

We are pleased to announce the financial support provided by SuperSolar to the SFN for the next 4 years. Note: currently, applications should be made to SuperSolar, but these procedures may change in the future. Please clearly state your ties to the SFN in your application(s). To see which funding calls are open, please click here.

Travel bursaries for PhD students & postdocs to attend international conferences
  • 6 available to SFN per year (first come first served basis, through the SuperSolar).
  • £500 per person with rest to be paid by institute/research group.
International research/industrial/outreach support
  • Grants up to £20k for growing networks, commercialisation, creating partnerships in solar, and outreach.
  • Applications open once a year, usually at the end of the year (last one was in November 2018).
Support for SFN-related meetings
  • Funding support for the annual SFN Symposium.
  • SFN meeting organisers are eligible to apply for 10 paid places for students. Please enquire with SuperSolar for funding approval as this will be dependent on the number/types of SFN meetings held that year.

Positions available!

PhD studentship opportunities for October 2019 start.
