RCUK plans to invest £5M in a multi-disciplinary Supergen Bioenergy Hub to act as a focal point for UK bioenergy research. The Hub will connect academia with industrial and policy stakeholders to focus on sustainable bioenergy development.
Prof. Patricia Thornley from the University of Manchester has been appointed to lead the Hub and is currently carrying out a consultation to establish the research priorities that the new hub will address from 2018-2022 and to identify appropriate research partners and stakeholders.
If you would like to get involved in helping shape this exciting new opportunity you would be very welcome to attend one of our consultation events that are open to the wider bioenergy community. Each event has a slightly different technical focus and will also explore different functions of the new hub. However, there will be opportunities at every event to register your particular views and interests, in addition to the main discussions. The events cover a wide geographical area and remote access will be available for those who cannot physically attend.
