SPIRE 2 and Interreg
The TRIBOS group is very pleased to be involved in two major grants in Tribology of Renewable Energy Devices with the EU Interreg Programme and the EPSRC. The launch of the EU SPIRE 2 (6.7 m euros) was in Belfast on October 27th 2017. TRIBOS with the CDT in Wind Energy will be working with SPIRE 2 colleagues in University of Ulster, Queens University and Dundalk Institute of Technology as part of this collaboration which on the Glasgow side involves 5 PhDs and 1 PDRA researchers.
The group is also collaborating in the EPSRC CAMREG project with Edinburgh and Cranfield Universities on materials for energy applications with a specific focus on tidal and wind turbine Tribology and Bio-fouling degradation.
