4th Fuel Poverty Research Network (FPRN) meeting: Society, Technology and Fuel Poverty - Newcastle University - 6-7 November 2017

The Fourth Fuel Poverty Research Network (FPRN) meeting: Society, Technology and Fuel Poverty, is taking place this Autumn at Newcastle University on 6th and 7th November. 

The event will explore the relationship between society and technology in relation to fuel poverty. The provisional programme features a range of presentations from people working in this sector, including reflections on the Health and Innovation Programme, reports from the National Centre for Energy Systems and Integration, and set of perspectives from policy, practice and industry. There will also be plenty of time to reflect on wider issues and the future direction of the FPRN network, and of course to talk to each other and share ideas. 

The meeting will be hosted by the National Centre for Energy Systems and Innovation in Newcastle University’s Urban Sciences Building located on the City’s flagship Science Central site.  The new building, open in Autumn 2017, is home to state-of-the-art international and collaborative research into digitally enabled urban sustainability.

Schedule: The event begins at midday on Monday 6th November and runs until 16:00 on Tuesday 7th, including a social event on the Monday evening. A provisional programme is available and registration is now open, and costs just £20. For more details and to register: http://www.fuelpovertyresearch.net/fprn4/
