We are happy to announce that we have been successful in winning funding from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to set up the North East Centre for Energy Materials (NECEM). This £2.25m project will last just under 4 years and involve several cross-cutting projects which examine how materials and interfaces can solve key energy problems. NECEM involves Newcastle, Durham and Northumbria Universities and academics from across the Sciences, as well as companies ranging from SME to multinational. I will be involved in a modelling project with colleagues in Newcastle as well as serving on the management board as the Durham representative. Exciting times!
