Government commits £60m of funding to Midlands universities

The Government has today confirmed £60 million for a new energy research project in the Midlands. The Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) is a multimillion research hub which will build on the expertise of six leading midlands universities, the British Geological Survey and the surrounding industrial base to deliver a step change in energy research and development, securing the UK's leadership position in the sector.

£350k EPSRC international collaborative research grant to clean-up radionuclides in the environment

A collaborative £350,000 EPSRC research grant between the University of Birmingham, Advanced Science Research Centre, Japanese Atomic Energy Agency, Kyushu University, and the College of Engineering at Shibaura Institute of Technology was issued in November 2014 titled 'Novel restoration materials for clean-up of radionuclides in the environment'

New cutting-edge robotic techniques in development to assist nuclear waste clean-up

A collaborative EU Horizon 2020 project including the University of Birmingham, National Nuclear Laboratories (NNL) and French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), and the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) will commence in May 2015 to develop cutting edge new robotics techniques to assist the future clean-up of legacy nuclear waste.

Singaporean delegation explore innovative Birmingham research in cold and power

The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Birmingham hosted a visiting delegation from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore on Friday 30 January. The College welcomed delegates for a day of discussion and to explore its projects focusing on 'cold and power'. In attendance were; Professor Tay Beng Kang, Associate Dean (Research), College of Engineering: Professor Louis Phee, Chair, School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; and Professor Alessandro Romagnoli, Assistant Professor, School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

Artificial proteins could bring the next biological revolution – starting with MRI

Scientists and engineers have looked to nature for their inspiration for centuries. The field of biomimetics uses ideas from nature to solve complex human challenges. Synthetic biology, a more recent concept, focuses on the design of artificial devices or systems with biological or "bio-like" functions. This covers a wide range of applications – but perhaps the most fascinating biological "device" we could wish to emulate is the protein.
