Energy is one of the cornerstones of modern society. Whether it be providing heat and light to homes, energy for industry and transport, or the charging of smartphones, how energy is generated and delivered is key.
Energy technologies evolve in a way that will influence how future society operates, for example the development of electric transport and batteries, through to delivering the energy needed to charge them.
The University of Liverpool has long-established multidisciplinary research teams advancing knowledge and delivering applications through partnerships across multiple topics in the energy research field. Examples of areas of expertise include generation and delivery technologies, enhancing energy efficiency and reducing waste, and how environmental changes induced by climate change impact on energy generation.
This event will showcase the application of our Energy research, key facilities/expertise available at the University of Liverpool - whilst stimulating engagement and debate on potential future collaboration opportunities.
Automation, artificial intelligence, economic crises and climate change have led some writers to ask whether capitalism is coming to the end of its life. Is this true? If so, will a revolution be needed to replace it with a more rational and efficient society?
The award-winning documentary "Inside Peace" is about three criminal offenders marked by generations of violence, addiction, and poor social conditions who attend the Peace Class in a Texas prison, where they struggle to discover their humanity, improve their outlook on life, and rebuild their lives from the inside out.
“These stories bleed through Inside Peace, and they are crucial to it, but they’re only part of what the film is about. The men manage to take the message to heart that they have value as people – no simple lesson… This is where, for the viewer, the awe comes in.” —Peace Behind Barbed Wire by Robert Koehler, Huffington Post
“…that extraordinarily powerful film that we watched earlier will have an impact on the way in which I look at every prison I inspect in the coming months and years.”
Peter Clarke, HM Chief Inspector of Prisons
