last modified Jan 28, 2016 11:58 AM

Researchers from UK and Chinese universities, including the University of Cambridge, are collaborating on four new projects to work towards achieving low carbon cities in the UK and China. The projects were announced as Chinese President, Xi Jinping visited the UK.  The projects will receive over £3 million in funding from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), with matched equivalent resources from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). Funded under the Low Carbon Cities programme, the projects will encourage collaboration between leading UK and Chinese academics, combining research to reduce the carbon emissions of existing technologies. The projects will also deliver fundamental research into alternative energy sources and a reduction of energy demand, all with a focus on future urban environments.
