£1.25m initiative to build a diverse energy research community


A £1.25m project is tackling the lack of diversity in energy research by harnessing the talents of researchers from all backgrounds.

The University of Nottingham is part of the IGNITE Network+ which is led by Strathclyde alongside partners Imperial College London, the University of Manchester, the University of Bristol, Queen’s University Belfast and Brunel University London.

The Innovation and Growth Needs Inclusion and engagement of all Talent in Energy research project aims to build an interdisciplinary community of energy researchers based on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and accessibility.

The project is funded by an EDI Network+ grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), part of UK Research & Innovation and will work to support sustainable, abundant, clean and equitable energy for all, by harnessing the talents of energy researchers from all backgrounds.
