Faraday Undergraduate Summer Experience (FUSE) scientific posters

FUSE scientific posters

 

 

In the summer of 2020 the Faraday Institution adapted the FUSE programme to create bespoke virtual internships giving 50 undergraduates across 17 universities the opportunity to work with a wide range of battery researchers. The aim was to inspire them about future STEM careers and to help to create a dynamic and diverse pool of talent for the fields of battery technology and energy storage.

The scientific posters presented here are one of the main outputs of their 8-week internships. Please take a look and start a discussion about the posters on the Conference Slack channel

These could be your future colleagues.
