New Research Ventures at the Materials Centre
The Materials Centre is to undertake two new research projects.
The Materials Group (Professor Andrew Abbott, Professor Karl Ryder, Professor Gawen Jenkin and Dr Dan Smith) has been acquired a £958k grant from the UKRI to research methods of creating a Circular Economy in Technology Metals. The project with Exeter, Manchester and Birmingham Universities together with the British Geological Survey aims to develop efficient extraction and recycling processes.
Professor Abbott and Dr Rama Suntharalingam have successfully obtained a £176k Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Leicester-based company Food Attractions. The partnership aims to investigate moisture transport in foods and hence improve product quality and shelf life.
