University of Liverpool

Contact: Dr Laurence Hardwick

A member of the Russell Group of major research-intensive universities in the UK, the University of Liverpool has an enviable international reputation for innovative research. Currently around 20,000 students are enrolled into more than 400 programs spanning 54 subject areas at its 3 faculties, including Health and Life Sciences; Humanities and Social Sciences; and Science and Engineering.

As a prestigious Russell Group institution, the University of Liverpool is one of the most exciting places in the UK to study or research Chemistry. Our Chemistry Department is internationally known for its research in fields such as materials chemistry, medicinal chemistry, surface chemistry and nanosciences. This is a place where academic and industrial researchers work side by side, sharing knowledge in highly advanced research laboratories.

The University of Liverpool is home to The Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy, which is part of the Departments of Chemistry and Physics and brings together energy-related research activities from across the University and beyond to focus on developing clean and sustainable energy technologies. In addition to its research programme, the Stephenson Institute allows students and postgraduates to work on energy-related projects and technologies providing them with relevant skills and knowledge to meet the UK and global demand for graduates in this emerging job market. The Stephenson Institute is a member of the European Platform of Universities Engaged in Energy Research (EPUE). Embracing academia, government and industry, it is unique in providing the intellectual focus, educational infrastructure and the essential facilities in innovating scientific discoveries and is therefore the perfect environment for the coordination of a network such as SIRBATT.
