Advanced Engineering webinar: Thermal Engineering

Published: 07 Jul 2021

Advanced Engineering is a strength across Sussex and the Gatwick Diamond, with a wide range of businesses making a vital contribution to the regional economy. The University of Brighton forges partnerships between researchers and industry, contributing to the regional innovation ecosystem to ensure companies in the region and beyond can operate at the forefront of engineering design and development.

The University of Brighton has teamed up with Gatwick Diamond Business to develop a webinar series that showcases leading developments in industry together with cutting-edge research from the University’s Advanced Engineering Centre (AEC). The webinars will also include relevant government policy insights, and funding opportunities.

The second webinar in the series will be a Zoom webinar on Thermal Management. Industrial and mechanical processes generate heat, and a key element of engineering design is to ensure that temperature can be regulated in the system. Furthermore, to optimise efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, engineering design seeks to recover waste heat to provide power. This webinar will present recent insights and industrial applications of innovation in thermal management.

The webinar on Friday 23rd July from 12:15-13:45 will feature:

  • Policy and Funding insights related the thermal management

    Speaker Philippa Oldham, Stakeholder Engagement Director at the Advanced Propulsion Centre

  • Research and innovation in thermal management

    Speaker Dr Nicolas Miché, Principal Lecturer and member of the Advanced Engineering Centre at the University of Brighton

  • Thermal management in batteries and beyond 

     Speaker Dr Cedric Rouaud, Ricardo

  • Thermal management in fuel cells

     Speaker Dr Alex McNicol, Principal Systems Engineer at Ceres Power

  • The role of universities and business networks in your innovation journey
