We’re so excited for the First International Solar Fuels Conference being held April 26th – May 1st this year. Hosted by the Swedish Consortium for Artificial Photosynthesis in Uppsala, Sweden, it’s the first conference to cover solar fuels research on such a broad, global scope.

If you’re a young researcher, be sure to check out ISF-1 Young, the pre-conference geared specifically for early career researchers, co-sponsored by SOFI.

Here’s why you should make sure to attend:

1. Everyone is going to be there! And I mean everyone. If you check out the list of speakers, you’ll see people from all over the world covering such a wide range of topics, you’re bound to find something that interests you. If you work in solar fuels, whether in an academic lab, a government lab, or industry, you don’t want to miss this opportunity to hear from the field’s brightest minds.

2. Collaboration and team science are important! And what better place to make connections than at ISF-1? At SOFI, we really believe breakthroughs in solar fuels will be made not just by individuals or within single disciplines, but by teams from across fields and across institutions, working together and sharing data and knowledge. ISF-1 will be an excellent forum to develop relationships, learn from your peers, and connect with leading researchers in the solar fuels field.

3. We’ll be there, and we want to see you succeed! SOFI loves to provide solar fuels researchers with opportunities to collaborate, platforms for sharing your research, and any other tools we can to help you get to your next breakthrough. We’re working on a Knowledge Map, our proprietary database of solar fuels research, to make all this data easily accessible. When you’re at ISF-1, be sure to find Dick Co and Amanda Smeigh so they can tell you all about how the SOFI can help you!

Feel free to reach out to us if you have questions about the conference. We can’t wait to see you there!
