1st UK-Japan Workshop on Energy Harvesting


 This workshop is for stimulating joint effort between industry and academia in UK and Japan, and partially supported by UK Embassy in Japan. Invited speakers include Dr. Paul Mitcheson, who is famous for his model of vibration-driven energy harvesting, Professor Haydn Thompson, who is closely working with industries including Rolls Royce in the field of energy harvesting, Mr. Masamoto Shimizu in UK Embassy in Japan. We encourage people both in academia and industry to attend this unique workshop!
