Known Unknowns: The Science to Save the World is All Around

Mar 12, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Understanding the technical points of leverage and exploring the known unknowns is the great unlock in our fight against climate change. Fulcrum technologies from quantum chemistry for new materials, to new catalysts like photofuels, and superconductors for energy transmission and storage will offer a rich set of early stage opportunities that lead to civilization-level impact. In a talk covering innovation across centuries, investor, inventor, and technologist Peter Barrett will explore the breakthrough fulcrum technologies we know — and space we still need to cover — to change our course.
