This workshop builds upon unique Australian interdisciplinary research and collaborations to develop novel approaches to governance leadership in the frontier renewable energy technology of artificial photosynthesis (making fuels, food and fertilizer from sunlight, water, atmospheric nitrogen and carbon dioxide).
It links established and emerging Australian scholars with eminent international experts to construct a framework for innovative law and public policy reform proposals that overcome impediments to rapid commercial deployment of this combined energy security and climate change solution. As such it will particularly focus on developing links between global artificial photosynthesis and initiatives such as the Breakthrough Energy Coalition of influential private philanthropists.
The workshop will run from 9am Wednesday 7 September to 3pm Thursday 8 September at Burgmann College Chapel, ANU. On the evening of Wednesday 7 September there will be a multimedia event open to the public from 6-8pm at the ANU School of Music.
