UK Research and Innovation launches Energy Revolution Research Consortium call

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has launched a call to form the Energy Revolution Research Consortium (ERRC), a new network of researchers and stakeholders to help to put the UK at the forefront of knowledge services for integrated energy systems.

As part of the challenge, UKRI will commit up to £12 million over four years to establish the ERRC, a network of multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary researchers, and key stakeholders, to work together on smart local energy systems.

The ERRC will work closely with the Energy Systems Catapult to provide analysis, evaluation and assessment of the demonstrators and designs funded under the Prospering from the Energy Revolution programme. Additionally, the ERRC will deliver a suite of strategic research projects that address industrially led challenges in the development of local, investable, consumer-centred energy approaches to create prosperous clean energy communities, in collaboration with existing research from within and beyond energy research investments.

The call will launch in June and, in collaboration with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Knowledge Transfer Network, UKRI is hosting a consortium-building workshop in Birmingham on 9 and 10 July, 2018.

How is Warwick's Food GRP supporting Coventry 2021?

The University of Warwick and Coventry University together announce 13 brand new public engagement projects combining research staff from both Universities with cultural organisations in Coventry. These underpin Coventry City Council’s Cultural Strategy and lay groundwork for both REF 2021 and Coventry City of Culture 2021.

All the projects will disseminate academic research through active participation; the Summer term will see the two Universities host a combined showcase event on Friday 06 July 2018 at Fargo to celebrate some of the many outputs from the projects. With the projects using various methods to communicate their research ranging from cooking, dance, theatre, mosaics, photography, workshops, poetry, storytelling, writing, and even lego – the showcase is sure to be interesting!

Two of the projects are supported by the Food GRP:

Invisible Irish’ of Coventry: women diaspora, food and performance - A series of cook-along interviews exploring the experiences of food, identity and belonging among first generation Irish women living in Coventry.

'Can't we DO IT OURSELVES?' - Public engagement events exploring food, health, and citizenship delivered with Moat House Community Trust.

All the projects are listed here.

Innovative Manufacturing

Connected everything - Conference 2018

Conference 2018 - Manufacturing a brave new world.
26-27 June
This year we are focusing on collaboration between academics and industry as we address the question of how best to support the future of manufacturing in the UK.


Internships Summer 2018

Carbon fibre-reinforced composites dominate high performance applications in the motorsport and aerospace industries but have significant barriers to their application in high volume areas such as the automotive industry including cost and environmental impact. The aim of the work being undertaken by the Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing Group at WMG is to show that the use of recycled carbon fibres can reduce the environmental impact to a fraction of that of the virgin carbon fibres at costs similar to a conventional glass-fibre reinforced composite.

                ICUR 2018 call for abstracts is now open

                the Call for Abstracts for the 6th annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) is now open! ICUR is a conference with a difference - held concurrently in Australia, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, South Africa, and the United States – ICUR connects conference presenters from across the world with cutting-edge video-conferencing technology.

                ICUR is a fantastic opportunity for students to present and discuss their research and can help them to develop both their research and presentation skills. They also have the opportunity to connect with other undergraduate researchers across countries and disciplines, and enhance their CV.

                What our past students have said:

                ‘ICUR was made brilliant by those that attended. They brought with them humour, energy and enough curiosity to reignite a passion for answering the unanswered questions of our time.’

                ‘I learned the importance of clear communication in research and enhanced my ability to deliver inspiring presentations on captivating topics.’

                Students can apply at www.icurportal.com

                ABOUT ICUR
                ICUR is a two-day event, held during Welcome Week on 25th - 26th September 2018, on central campus at Warwick. It is an exclusively undergraduate forum designed to showcase the best in undergraduate research from across the globe, and to provide a supportive environment for talented young scholars, many of whom are doing and presenting research for the first time

                The conference is multidisciplinary and all undergraduate students who have research to share are encouraged to apply. Students are invited to submit abstracts of 250 words for either a fifteen minute spoken presentation or a poster presentation. We welcome submissions from all disciplines and perspectives.

                WHY ICUR?
                ICUR is an opportunity for students to:

                  1. Internationalise their university experience by presenting on the world stage.
                    1. Understand how to articulate the importance of their research across disciplinary boundaries.
                      1. Develop an appreciation of how local specificities or global imperatives shape their research area.

                      HOW TO APPLY
                      Its easy to apply, students can submit an abstract using the online form at www.icurportal.com

                      The deadline for submission of abstracts is Monday 31st May 2018. If you have any enquiries please email icur@warwick.ac.uk

                      ELIGIBILITY
                      All undergraduate students are eligible to apply. We welcome research projects which are the outcome of dissertations, course work, group projects, summer internships or independent research. Students are also welcome to submit work that they have developed with a member of staff. We ask students whose abstracts have arisen from a group project, to confirm they have consent from all group members/individuals involved, prior to applying.

                      SELECTION
                      All submissions will be reviewed by a panel and students may be asked to revise their abstract prior to final selection. Whilst this is a competitive process, we aim to be as inclusive as possible.

                      Abstracts will be reviewed against the following criteria:

                        1. The project is a research project undertaken at undergraduate level which makes an interesting contribution to the field.
                          1. There is a clear methodology which has been appropriately used.
                            1. References show an understanding of recent developments in the field.
                              1. The abstract is accessible to specialist and non-specialist interdisciplinary audiences.

                              The ICUR Team will let the student know if your abstract has been selected by the end of June 2018.

                              Please visit www.icurportal.com for guidance on applying to ICUR and for news, training and updates on the ICUR experience.

                              Limited supply and speculative buying will likely prevent bitcoin reaching the masses. However, will the blockchain technology behind it upend the world of finance?

                              In an interview with World Finance, Professor Tim Watson, Director of the WMG Cyber Security Centre at the University of Warwick, described how some firms are so determined to lead the blockchain revolution, they haven’t stopped to consider how to use it.
