Towards Global Artificial Photosynthesis: Energy, Nanochemistry and Governance

Lord Howe Island, Australia | Posted on May 2nd, 2011

The aim of this conference is to foster international collaborations and strategies for funding through a global effort in five key areas of artificial photosynthesis:

• global collaborations, governance and policy structures and models
• energy capture — including photovoltaic systems
• energy conversion and storage — including hydrogen production
• carbon fixation and
• modified and synthetic biological processes.

We hope this will be the first of a series of conferences on the theme of creating a Global Artificial Photosynthesis (GAP) project. It is envisaged that a set of draft principles and related publication on the topic of a Global Collaboration on Artificial Photosynthesis will be prepared as a result of the conference.

The conference will showcase the research of some of the world's leading experts in artificial photosynthesis, photovoltaics, hydrogen production, nanotechnology and global governance.
