School of Management alumnus Jon Hughes and his wife Catherine have generously pledged more than £670,000 to support six Research with Impact PhD Scholarships in sustainability. These prestigious scholarships enable us to attract the best and brightest inventors and innovators that are essential to scientific research.
“What excites us about sustainability research at Bath is that it’s investing in future technologies that will enable people to continue to live the lives they want to live but in a much more sustainable and less polluting way,” says Jon.
Finding future fuels is key to addressing the climate crisis. Not only is the University leading a multi-million research hub, but we’re also hosting the first green hydrogen manufacturing plant in the South West, finding ways to harness hydrogen and alternative liquid fuels as a sustainable energy source in aviation, marine and heavy-duty transport, which are hard to electrify.
“We want the UK to be a leader in developing future fuels, with Bath at the forefront."
