Industrial Advisory Board for the Fuel Cells and their Fuels CDT

The Industrial Advisory Board provides invaluable direction on the educational and training content of the CDT from an industry perspective. It is an aim of the CDT that its students emerge with a highly developed understanding of current work, practices and thinking within the energy industry. The board takes an active role in collaborating on new research opportunities and ensuring the CDT remains on top of current industry focus in hydrogen, fuel cell and related energy markets.

Becoming an Industrial Partner

We believe we have devised a scheme that will make the interaction between the students, the academics and the industrial partners even stronger.  We are also mindful of the fact that companies want to engage with the CDT at differing levels and hence we are offering options of three funding levels as summarised in table below. This is a proposed framework and final the details can be negotiated between your company and the appropriate academic institute.
