Thanks to funding from BEIS (Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy) a team of researchers led by Professor Tony McNally, from WMG, at the University of Warwick in partnership with Senergy Innovations Ltd have developed the first nanomaterial enabled all polymer solar thermal cell. The thermal properties of the polymers employed are modified such that heat from sunlight can be transferred with high efficiency to heat water in a cheap and sustainable manner.
Dr Leandro Pecchia from the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick, has been awarded €13 million for the ODIN project, which will explore the use of robots and artificial intelligence to help ease the pressures on hospitals, which will be crucial also in the recovery of Covid-19 and to help any other future disasters.
WMG an academic department at the University of Warwick was on this day, the 1st of October, 1980 started by the late Professor Lord Bhattacharyya. To celebrate, we've highlighted 40 achievements made by the department over the last 40 years.
Warwick researchers investigate personalised mechanical ventilation of COVID-19 patients using computer simulations
Engineers from the University of Warwick are leading a project funded under the UK Research and Innovation rolling COVID-19 call to work with clinicians from the University of Nottingham over the next 18 months to investigate optimal strategies for mechanical ventilation of COVID-19 patients. The first results from the project have now been published in the journal Critical Care Explorations.
