Outreach

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.

If you work in education and would like some solar fuels related worksheets and resources check out our education page!
