The Solar Fuels Network actively supports public engagement and outreach activities that raise the profile of solar fuels/artificial photosynthesis research. Outreach and Dissemination Bursaries are available for UK-based SFN members to help fund such activities, see Funding.

During 2013, the Durrant research group at Imperial hosted two secondary school students participating in the programme “Youth and Science” for a three week work experience placement. During their stay, the students had the opportunity to see at first hand the work of scientists and to become part of a research group. Their project was focused in the development of a photocathode composed of a TiO2 film functionalised with a molecular dye and a platinum catalyst for proton reduction.
