Leverhulme grant award to Corr group

The Leverhulme Trust have awarded a £262k grant for a project led by Dr Serena Corr titled “Multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites for artefact conservation”. This project, in collaboration with Dr Eleanor Schofield at the Mary Rose Trust and Professor Rachel O’Reilly at Warwick University, will use smart nanocomposite materials to treat waterlogged wood from Henry VIII’s flagship, the Mary Rose.

SSCG_ColourCongratulations to Josefa who was awarded a travel bursary from the RSC Solid State group.  Josefa travelled to the Gordon Research Conference on Solid State Compounds and Materials for Emerging Technologies and Sustainable Energy Generation.  You can read Josefa’s report on the meeting in the latest RSC Solid State Group newsletter, here.

EPSRC grant award to Corr group

epsrcThe group have been awarded a SUPERGEN Energy Storage Challenge grant from the EPSRC for £1.2 million. The project, entitled “Design and high throughput microwave synthesis of Li-ion battery materials”, brings together groups from Glasgow (Dr Serena Corr [PI], Prof Duncan Gregory, Prof Nikolaj Gadegaard), Strathclyde (Dr Eddie Cussen), Loughborough (Dr Pooja Panchmatia), UCL (Dr David Scanlon), Oxford (Prof Andrew Goodwin) and ISIS (Dr Peter Baker) to establish new routes to high performance Li-ion battery materials.
