Successful bid to Global Innovation Initiative fund kick-starts NOMAD

NOMAD, Nanostructured materials for the control of contaminants detrimental to Health, has successfully gained funding through the Global Innovation Initiative fund.

The Global Innovation Initiative (GII) is a shared commitment of the United Kingdom and the United States to strengthen research collaboration between universities in the UK, US, and selected countries, which in NOMAD’s case involves China.  The Global Innovation Initiative is administered by the British Council.  The British Council helps citizens and institutions contribute to a more inclusive, open and prosperous world and connects local issues to global themes.

NOMAD will manage a series of knowledge transfer visits between partners in the USA, UK and China to push forward technology around nanostructured materials for biomedical and environmental applications. The funding is for 2 years and includes three symposium events in each of the different partner countries to disseminate the findings of the project.
