Event designed to position Humber region at the forefront of the global transition to a zero-carbon economic model.

Experts from the University of Hull will speak at this year's Waterline Summit.

Leading University of Hull experts in environment and low-carbon energy are included in the line-up for the 2020 Waterline Summit.

Speakers including Dr Dave Richards, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research & Enterprise, Professor Dan Parsons, Director at the Energy & Environment Institute, and Louise Smith, Director at Aura, will all share their insight and knowledge during the five-day virtual event, taking place from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October.

Also included in the line-up of speakers are Dr Briony McDonagh, Lead for the University’s Risky Cities project, Dr Christina Roggatz, whose research into ocean acidification formed a new display at Hull attraction The Deep earlier this year, and Steve Curtis, Head of Sport at the University.

Dr Sam Ramsden, a Research Associate within the University’s Energy & Environment Institute, will also join the Summit. Dr Ramsden led a major household survey, commissioned by the Living with Water partnership, investigating the impact of Hull’s 2007 floods on residents in the city.

The Waterline Summit 2020, led by Marketing Humber in partnership with the University of Hull and Yorkshire Water, aims to position the region at the forefront of the global transition to a zero-carbon economic model.

It will build on the growing momentum across the estuary to embrace pioneering technologies, attract significant investment and create jobs in a green economy.

Dr Dave Richards said: “The University of Hull is once again proud to be a leading partner in the 2020 Waterline Summit.

“The University has gained, over the years, a world-renowned expertise in low-carbon energy and renewable technologies, alongside the impacts of climate change, such as flooding. All of this knowledge and research power is now playing an integral role in the Humber region’s push to become net-zero for carbon emissions by 2040.

“The Waterline Summit provides a week-long opportunity to not only see how the Humber is leading the way in low-carbon innovation, but also to meet key stakeholders and find out how your business can join the green revolution.

“I would urge all those who have not yet registered, to do so.”
