The University of Sydney and the IIT Madras have joined hands, intending to direct focus toward the energy challenges. Collaboration is initiated with the aim of helping to address the issues that are generally faced by nations across the world. Both institutions will, therefore, invest a sum of AU$50,000 annually in joint funding for up to four research projects to develop joint research.
From this partnership, we can expect the experts from the two institutions to work together towards developing research and advanced technology in energy-related fields. For the most part, Researchers across disciplines from science and engineering will join hands and collaborate. The focus areas, in particular, will be; energy storage and conversion, solar desalination and cold storage, photo and electrochemical energy, gas turbines, micro-grids, and renewable energy systems.
Over time, the universities intend to host shared conferences and workshops to develop this project. Initially, a workshop took place in August 2022. The focus of that workshop was on hydrogen technologies. In addition, workshops in areas of research are expected to be held this year.
Generally, these areas are inclusive of solar energy and renewable energy management systems. Subsequently, Prof. V. Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras, and the University of Sydney’s Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Mark Scott, and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research, Professor Emma Johnston signed an MoU today at the campus of IIT Madras. Prof. Raghunathan Rengaswamy, Dean (Global Engagement), IIT Madras, was present to witness the signing ceremony.
