Dr Laurence Hardwick from the department of Chemistry hosted the ElectrochemNW 2014 meeting at the Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy on 23rd June 2014 with some 80 delegates attending.

The event was sponsored by the International Society of Electrochemistry and the Royal Society of Chemistry.  ElectrochemNW is the premier annual meeting of electrochemists working within the North West of the UK and provides an opportunity to hear of the diverse research taking place in electrochemistry. There were a mix of talks from both academics and industry, with a keynote from Professor Karl Ryder from the University of Leicester on "Electrochemistry in deep eutectic solvents; metals processing to energy storage" 

The University of Liverpool was well represented with talks given by Professor Mathias Brust, Dr James Walsh and postgraduate students Gary Harlow and Andrea Vezzoli.  Representing the SIRBATT project, which is coordinated by Dr Hardwick, Stephan Koch from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, presented research currently being undertaken within the network.

Several trade stands were on display in the Stephenson Institute and there was a poster session.

SciMed Scientific & Medical Products Ltd. provided a £100 prize for the best poster, which was awarded to Iain Aldous and Tom Galloway of the University of Liverpool (‘In Situ Spectroscopic Studies of the Electrochemistry of Dioxygen in Non-Aqueous Li-Oxygen Battery Electrolytes’).

Metrohm Autolab U.K. awarded £100 to Stephan Koch from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology for the best talk ("In situ investigation of lithium dendrite growth"). 

Additional sponsorship was received from Acal Energy, Alvatek, and EC-Lab.
