Winton Symposium 2018 “Machines: from extremely large to the nanoscale"

The Winton Programme, operating from the Maxwell Centre, focuses on cutting edge discovery science around sustainability and energy efficiency. The annual Winton Symposium is the highlight of the year, featuring inspiring speakers from leading groups around the world. We are looking forward to reconnecting with many of you there.

Machines for energy conversion and detectors play a crucial role in our society. Key technology drivers now seek to make them more efficient and to operate across different scales. The symposium will discuss the chemically powered world of living systems alongside the man-made world of electrically and optically coupled devices with speakers’ topics ranging from electric motors to detectors of gravity waves, from nanoscale devices to those spanning kilometres to explore our universe.
