University invests £1.5M in advanced propulsion research
Loughborough University is investing £1.5M over five years in strategic research appointments, inspired by the global challenge to develop the new advanced propulsion technologies required for the move to zero emission vehicles.
These appointments reinforce the University’s world-class research in low-carbon vehicle technologies, adding new dimensions concerned with electric and hybrid drives.
Four appointments will be made, including a Chair in Advanced Propulsion Systems, supported by a number of PhD studentships.
The £1.5M investment is part of the University’s commitment to the recently announced Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) to support the development of new supply chains for low carbon vehicles. APC is an initiative established by the Automotive Council that will see £1 billion of investment from government and industry over the next 10 years.
