Energy Transitions Research at the University of Cambridge

Major new research grant awarded to Professor Sir Mark Welland in the field of nanotechnology

The multi-million pound 5 year project sponsored by Lloyd’s Register Foundation follows the publication of the LRF’s Foresight review in nanotechnology: the next industrial revolution. The project is entitled Nanotechnology in subsea power infrastructure. Along with its collaborators; National University of Singapore, Texas A&M University, The Institute of Occupational Medicine and Kaneka Holdings, this work will explore the potential of copper/carbon nanotube metal matrix composites in the fabrication of electrically conductive materials with enhanced properties for use in subsea power transmission applications.
