PhD in Physics and MPhil in nanotechnology commercialization from Cambridge University and Judge Business School, Andrey Shigaev took Business Development leadership in Geyser Batteries in 2018.

At SHIFT, Andrey will discuss how and if science is leading the way for sustainable business. The world is facing unprecedented challenges that clearly can not be solved with the current level of technological development. Huge steps have been made technically and politically in the transition towards sustainable economy and society, but more than anything those revealed more major new challenges for us.
