Universities ally with Germans for energy research
TWO city universities have signed a landmark deal with several German counterparts.
Heriot-Watt University and Edinburgh University have signed an alliance for up to a decade of joint research with the institutions. The Memorandum of Understanding will include shared teaching on geological reservoirs and renewable energy production and storage.
Professor Steve Chapman, principal of Heriot-Watt, said, “The aim is to bring together top-level specialists in the field from Scotland and Germany.”
Professor Timothy O’Shea, principal and vice-chancellor at Edinburgh University, added: “The university is delighted to be part of this collaboration, which will address some of the key challenges facing the energy sector.
“We are looking forward to working with our partners on a range of innovative projects that will improve our understanding of oil and gas recovery, and aid the quest for safe waste disposal.”
