Solar Fuels Institute uses Northwestern Scholars

Summer 2012

The Solar Fuels Institute (SOFI) is a new global consortium based out of Northwestern University that unites universities, government labs, and industry to turn sunlight into a commercial liquid fuel in 10 years.   SOFI aspires to deliver carbon-neutral, geopolitically-favorable fuels to mitigate climate change.  The challenges with a geographically distributed team, vast parameter space to explore in solar fuels research, and the infancy of the science/technology necessitate strategic focus on project management and digital tools for collaborative data sharing, data-driven decision making, and team building.  For that reason, SOFI is collaborating with Northwestern Scholars and Elsevier SciVal. Elsevier has generously created a dedicated SOFI instance, "SOFI Expert Team," that was demoed at the Launch Meeting in Telluride, CO in August 13-15, 2012.  SOFI hopes to continue the development partnership with Northwestern Scholars and Elsevier and stay at the forefront of research networking and expertise mapping.
