This project aims to develop a reversible fuel cell - electrolyser capable of storing electricity (in the form of hydrogen
gas) with the same overall energy efficiency as the best present storage system, pumped hydro. Whereas pumped
hydro requires large infrastructure like dams, the proposed cell will be extremely inexpensive and easily scalable.

Project Summary
By linking landscapes into our emerging low-carbon economy, this project will investigate how land management
practices can be improved through payments for ecosystem services. With a focus on water and carbon, the main goal
is to develop mechanisms to support integrated land and water management at the catchment scale.

The aim of this project is to develop an orally administered drug formulation for the treatment of irritable bowel
syndrome and other diseases of the colon. Irritable bowel syndrome is a debilitating condition and the cost to society is
similar to that of asthma. As such, the project has the potential to have a major impact on society.
