‘Zero Carbon: From Research to Commercialisation’. Workshop 1
The event is now SOLD OUT.
Cambridge Zero is the new initiative from the University of Cambridge to help achieve a zero-carbon goal by 2038. The Maxwell Centre, as business interface for Cambridge Zero, in partnership with Cambridge Cleantech, invite you to hear what is new in research to help achieving this goal and discuss how commercialised solutions contribute to delivering zero carbon future.
Join us to hear about the latest research from materials to circular economy and from waste management to the build environment, and let’s join forces to fight the climate emergency.
