EPSRC Programme Grant to develop novel energy and bioelectronic materials

Researchers from Oxford and Cambridge to develop novel energy and bioelectronic materials with new EPSRC Programme Grant

Researchers from Oxford Chemistry are part of a new £6.7 million EPSRC Programme Grant that will fund work on fundamental research challenges in soft functional materials.

Professors Andrew Goodwin and Iain McCulloch are part of the team of 10 researchers at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge that will be at the forefront of work that on a new generation of soft functional materials. These materials could have applications in a wide range of fields, including photodetection, photocatalysis, thermal energy harvesting, energy storage and bioelectronics.

Professor Mark Brouard, Head of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, said: “I offer my warmest congratulations to my colleagues and their collaborators on securing this award, which will facilitate important and exciting interdisciplinary research.”
