Following the success of the first Network Pot Luck in February 2020, we are doing it again in central London (nearest tubes are Russell Square or Holborn) from 19:00 until late. For a Pot Luck, we each bring something to share – drink, food or dessert. We hope to see some of you there. Please let Iris know if you are attending and you will be sent the full address.

Virtual meetup, Tuesday 12 October

We had a great meet up on 12 October with new members attending and introducing themselves.

We started off with our intrepid speaker Olga Babakina doing her presentation while walking home from work, so we had glimpses of the Thames
as we found out more about her new job at Low Carbon Contracts Company and then all about Deep Branch who are turning CO2 into fishfood. As we know animal feed made from soya adds pressure globally so locally produced feed is helpful as well as capturing CO2.

Heidi, a new biolady, told us Quantum Machine Learning is helpful in this field and provided information about work with ‘Total’ in carbon capture. She will tell us more when she gives a presentation early next year. 

We then had a presentation by Macarena Beltran,  Research Assistant at Centre for Business in Society at Coventry University on the work done as
part of the SIMBIO project, Bioplastics Social Innovation labs. SIMBIO focuses on developing social interventions to address the environmental and
social challenges of bioplastics packaging throughout its entire supply chain from production to end-of-life management. It is a collaborative
project between researchers in Canada, Brazil and Poland.
