Universities Face Job Cuts
14th Dec 2018
The award, from the Universities UK International (UUKi) Rutherford Fund Strategic Partner Grants programme, is funded by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The funds will be used to bring four early career researchers from Curtin University in Australia and IMP and CIVESTAV-INP from Mexico to Aberdeen for nine months each.
The programme will see researchers work on projects within the area of renewable energy storage and conversion.
The aim is for the Rutherford programme to help the University of Aberdeen to build on global strategic partnerships and deepen existing links between the university and its partner institutions in Australia and Mexico.
Commenting on the funding, Dr Angel Cuesta, from the university's Department of Chemistry, said: "Not only will this initiative strengthen our international connections and open up the possibility of future research collaborations, it will also enhance existing inter-disciplinary work here at the University between our departments of engineering and chemistry."
"Renewable energy storage and conversion is a vitally important area of research in terms of cutting global CO2 emissions, and the work that these four talented early career researchers will be engaged in will help advance our collective knowledge of the potential for new techniques that can help achieve this goal."
