Researchers from around the world had the opportunity to network and share ideas at the 2014 Solar Fuels Gordon Research Conference.

Topics ranged from light capture and utilization to water oxidation catalysis to biological and biomimetic proton reduction catalysis. SOFI was a contributor at the conference, and has forged a new collaborative partnership with the UK-based Solar Fuels Network. The two organizations will encourage members to develop collaborative projects, and they can submit research proposals to SOFI and SFN for joint funding. During the workshop, SOFI and SFN members discussed other potential joint activities, such as teleconferences, webinars and blogs. Informal discussions after the workshop between researchers led to a number of potential UK-US collaborative projects.
