We work in partnership with leading universities, providing research equipment, supporting the spin out of new technologies and companies, training and equipping students and staff and continually developing our own capabilities from world leading research. Imperial College, Warwick Manufacturing Group and UCL are just three examples of our research partnerships.
We have developed a long term relationship with the Imperial College working with the Energy Futures Lab, Chemistry and Engineering Departments - world leaders in electrochemical, energy storage and fuel cell research. Key academic partners are Professor Nigel Brandon, Dr Greg Offer and Dr Anthony Kucernak and their highly experienced research teams.
Our partnership with Imperial means we are able to draw on their leading expertise and research equipment to support client projects.
Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult are a partner in our fuel cell manufacturing project, developing the processes for low cost manufacture of our closed cathode, air cooled fuel cell stack. We have access to their expertise in developing an automotive battery manufacturing pilot line as well as modelling and piloting of automation systems. In turn we are contributing to their research knowledge of the emerging automotive fuel cell sector and the manufacturing requirements for these systems.
We have a multi-facted relationship with the Electrochemical Innovation Lab at UCL, particularly Professor Dan Brett and his team. We have supplied systems to them for research, are providing educational and engagement programmes as part of their STEM outreach and supporting the team to spin out their novel fuel cell technology.
