UK-China Low Carbon Manufacturing Workshop

25 Oct 2017

EPSRC as part of the RCUK Energy Programme is inviting expressions of interest to attend a two-day Workshop in March 2018 to engage in discussion and initiate new collaborative working partnerships with selected Chinese participants in the area of low-carbon manufacturing.  The Workshop will be held in Wuhan, China.  A UK-China call for research proposals, to be funded by EPSRC in partnership with the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), will follow the Workshop, although attendance at the Workshop is not a requirement to apply to the call.

In participating in this event, you will be able to discuss the research challenges which would benefit from collaboration between UK and Chinese experts in this field. The discussion will focus on the research required to achieve a step-change reduction in energy demand in energy-intensive industries, and is likely to include the following areas:

  • Novel low-energy manufacturing processes
  • Refinement of manufacturing process technologies to reduce energy demand, including system design, control, enhanced sensing, data capture and utilisation
  • Improved on-site energy management, including energy harvesting, recovery and storage.

You will also have the opportunity to initiate new working relationships with UK and Chinese collaborators.
