Sustainable chemical technologies showcased on campus

A showcase of the University’s research into sustainable chemical technologies will take place on Monday 11 to Wednesday 13 July 2011.

The event, now in its second year, is run by the Centre for Sustainable Technologies, and attracts speakers from industry and academia across the world.

The Doctoral Training Centre in Sustainable Chemical Technologies was established in 2008 with a £7.5m EPSRC grant.

The event is open to anyone interested in research in the field of sustainability, and is free to attend.

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies brings together academic expertise and international industrial partners in response to sustainability rising rapidly in the corporate agenda.

The centre’s activities include research, training and outreach, crossing traditional boundaries between chemical sciences and engineering. All of the Centre’s research projects are multidisciplinary in nature, to deliver new and sustainable chemical technologies for the future.

Dr Janet Scott, Doctoral Training Centre Coordinator, is managing the showcase.

Dr Scott said: “The event gives those interested in sustainable technologies an opportunity to learn more about research taking place within the Centre and to engage with researchers and industry leaders in the field.

“A number of workshops will take place during the event, which will allow researchers to build collaborative ties with industry. Last year these resulted in a number of project proposals to shape future research in the Centre.

The Doctoral Training Centre offers a 4-year integrated PhD programme in Sustainable Chemical Technologies.
