Centre for Doctoral Training in Catalysis to be led by the CCI
22nd November 2013
Science Minister David Willetts has announced that the EPSRC is to create a Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Catalysis addressing some of society’s biggest challenges through catalysis: clean energy generation, environmental clean-up of air and water and sustainable manufacture.
This interdisciplinary programme will be led by the Cardiff Catalysis Institute (one of Cardiff’s four research institutes), together with the universities of Bath and Bristol, to offer postgraduate training in Catalysis and Reaction Engineering.
Professor Graham Hutchings FRS, Director of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Catalysis, Cardiff University said: “This interdisciplinary programme will allow postgraduates to develop an advanced knowledge of traditional and emerging catalysis disciplines, an understanding of industry and global contexts plus research and professional skills. The resulting graduates will drive and grow the UK catalysis sector as well as support the needs of UK industry.”
