Profile
The University of Manchester (UoM) is an internationally recognized institution with a reputation for pioneering research. The University engages in internationally significant research in a wide range of subjects. One recent evidence of the strong research environment of UoM is that the Noble Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Professor Andre Geim and Konstantin in the field of graphene. Energy research and teaching is carried out at UoM across a wide range of areas centered on the themes of renewable energy resources, production, transportation and consumption. Linking these themes are the areas of energy policy, economics and societal impact.
