Shakes and Waves: Modern innovations to tackle climate change and boost wellbeing

An Alumni and supporters event
Date29 June 2017
Time18:30 to 20:30
PlacePrince Philip House, 3 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5DG

Join us as we host a special event at the prestigious Prince Philip House in St James, London. Come and network with fellow alumni and staff from the University of Exeter over drinks and canapés, before hearing from two renowned Exeter academics. During the evening we’ll discuss how innovations in green energy can help support a secure and stable energy future, and enable environmentally-friendly economic growth.

With a growing energy demand in the UK and around the world, it is essential to address the global challenge of climate change. Professor Lars Johanning will discuss his research in energy security and global warming, exploring ways to deliver energy from the ocean for the 21st century. His research into marine technology has paved the way for innovations which enable low-carbon economic growth and clean, sustainable power to be provided to the next generation.

We spend 90% of our lives in buildings which vibrate non-stop, but there is still very little reliable information about the effect of structural vibration. Professor Aleksandar Pavic will discuss his leading research into the impact of ‘wobbly’ civil engineering structures such as skyscrapers, bridges and buildings, examining how this can affect wellbeing and behaviour of the people that live and work inside them.

Professor Lars Johanning is the Chair of Ocean Technology and Head of Offshore Renewable Energy at the University of Exeter. He is a leading researcher with international recognition in the field of ocean energy and technology with a focus towards hydrodynamics and mooring systems.

Professor Aleksandar Pavic holds the Chair in Vibration Engineering and leads the Vibration Engineering Section in the Engineering discipline. His expertise is in vibration serviceability of slender civil engineering structures, such as long-span floors, footbridges and grandstands, which are occupied and dynamically excited by humans.

How to book: Tickets are available at £10 each via our online store. Guests and non alumni are welcome to attend.
