Collaborations and partnerships

Our research group collaborates with world-leading research groups and works closely with industry. Dr Qilei Song was awarded the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant in 2019. He is also a Co-I of £9M Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council EPSRC Programme Grant SynHiSel. The group has established strong research collaborations with industrial partners, including BP-ICAM, Shell, Toyota Motor Europe, and Schlumberger. We are keen to establish new collaborations and form partnerships with industry to solve practical technological challenges and train the next generation of researchers.
