As a destination we have an established reputation for expertise in science and engineering, and holding world-renowned conferences such as UKES help to enforce the growing reputation.

“We’re looking forward to working together with Newcastle University and the other partners involved to ensure that the 2018 conference is bigger and better than ever before.”

Previously held in Birmingham, UKES is an annual conference hosted by The Energy Storage Research Network (ESRN), the Energy SUPERSTORE and the STFC Network in Battery Science and Technology, all funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
