“The world of energy faces some tough challenges in the decades ahead, particularly in meeting increasing demand with less environmental impact. In seeking to meet these challenges, strategic partnerships with world-class academic institutions remain essential – and  the University of Cambridge is one of our most valued relationships. Through understanding and respecting mutual objectives, our long-term collaboration ensures that research is closely aligned with real-world challenges and also benefits from an interdisciplinary approach. Our co-operation now spans technology and policy research across many departments as well as executive education, hiring at graduate and post-graduate level and international programmes. We also have the benefit of being able to engage across the spectrum of R&D stages – from fundamental and applied research to co-founding technology venturing companies. We have benefited greatly from the University’s strategic approach to industrial engagement, the professionalism of the central industrial liaison team as well as multi-industry perspectives of world-class academics”
