The ERA Net-Zero Heroes webinar series will feature speakers from academia, industry and our PhD student cohort

Net-Zero Heroes

These webinars are for students, academics and professional services staff who are interested in finding out about the latest research, innovation and commercial developments in green energy.

Webinar 1: The Big Ideas, 25th February

The first of our webinars was delivered by ERA's Director, Professor Martin Freer of the University of Birmingham. Martin discussed ERA's ambitious plans to put the Midlands at the forefront of energy innovation, known as 'The Big Ideas'.

ERA's exciting Big Ideas have the potential to create thousands of new jobs in the Midlands and bring in investment of over £1.5 billion, helping to stimulate the post-COVID-19 recovery and supporting the levelling-up of the Midlands.

Hosting and chairing the session was Cranfield PhD student Tosin Adedipe, who is part of the ERA Skills programme.
