The China-UK Workshop on Renewable Energy Systems in Zero Carbon Villages will take place in Lhasa, Tibet, China, 6-8 August 2018.

Under the Researcher Links programme offered within the Newton Fund, the British Council and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), we will be holding a workshop on themes relating to energy, architecture, climate, environment, rural and urban development.

This workshop will discuss topics of sustainable energy for all and how it impacts on the economic development and social welfare of people, particularly the vulnerable or those with lower incomes, in Tibet.

Tibet covers nearly a quarter of China's territory and has a fragile ecological environment. There is an urgent need to form novel building energy systems that suit Tibet’s geographical conditions and its urbanisation to avoid pollution. Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, has 2333 kWh/m2 annual solar radiation which is 2-3 times that compared to the UK. It provides an excellent opportunity for the utilisation of solar energy for buildings and poverty alleviation.

The Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China has funded the basic theory of renewable heating and air conditioning in Northwest China as its National Key Research and Development Programme (2016-20) which tackles critical bottlenecks that the nation faces. The timing of this workshop is ideal for enhancing the ongoing national key research programme.

Workshop opportunities

The workshop will be highly interdisciplinary and will bring together 39 researchers from China (20) and the UK (19) with research interests relevant to Renewable Energy Systems in Zero Carbon Villages. It will provide a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise, networking and developing new research proposals.

During the workshop, Early Career Researchers (ECRs) will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of a short oral presentation and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and China. There will be a focus on building links for future collaborations. Participants will be selected on the basis of their research potential and ability to build longer-term links.

The deadline for applications is 10:00 on 16 April 2018 (GMT).

We are now inviting Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from the UK to apply to participate in this workshop.

The British Council Researcher Links programme provides opportunities for ECRs from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other, and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.

You are invited to submit your application form to participate in the workshop. Applicants will be alerted shortly after the selection.

Selection procedure

Applicants will be selected on the basis of an eligibility check and quality assessment.

Eligible participants

  • Early Career Researchers in the UK who should have expertise in renewable technologies, zero carbon building/villages, energy systems integration, energy demand, supply and storage and rural development
  • applicants must hold a PhD (or have equivalent research experience) and have up to 10 years post-PhD research experience with allowances made for career breaks
  • applicants must hold a research or academic position (a permanent post, research contract, or fellowship etc) at a recognised UK institution (universities, companies, NGOs and public organisations).

Please note others may apply to attend without a registration fee but expenses will not be covered.

Quality assessment criteria

  • experience and relevance of the applicant’s research area to the workshop
  • motivation and contribution to the aims of the workshop
  • description of the long-term impact expected through the participation in the workshop
  • ability to disseminate workshop outcomes
  • ability to lead/participate in future collaborations.

Equal opportunities

Equal opportunities and diversity are at the heart of the British Council’s cultural relations ambitions. While recognising that some research fields are dominated by one particular gender, co-ordinators are encouraged to work towards an equal gender balance and promote diversity.

They must not exclude applicants on the basis of ethnicity, gender, religious belief, sexual orientation or disability. Participant selection undertaken by workshop organisers must not contravene this policy. Extra support to enable participation of Early Career Researchers with special needs will be given.

Expenses

The British Council and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) will cover the costs related to the participation in the workshop.

For UK participants, the British Council's Researcher Links programme will cover travel costs to the country of the workshop, visa costs, travel insurance and local transport to the workshop venue (occurred amounts with maximum £1,200 per participant).

The NSFC will cover accommodation and meals during the workshop.

Participants will be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements including visa and travel insurance.

Although the British Council will not cover this cost, participants are encouraged to purchase adequate medical insurance. The British Council and workshop co-ordinators cannot take responsibility for any issues which occur when the participants are in-country.
