The University of Nottingham has signed a of Understanding (MoU) with one of China’s biggest vehicle to undertake research into low technologies.

The research project, is potentially worth up to £1 over three years to the will investigate the development of a of technologies, including thermal and heat transfer for low carbon This is a vitally important in the development of hybrid electric (HEV) and pure electric (EV), which rely on and electronic components that only operate effectively at temperatures.

Founded in 1953, FAW is a player in the Asian motor It employs 118,000 people, over three million per annum to over 70 countries, and the of the business are valued at over billion. Representing FAW at the signing of the MoU was Dr Li President of the RD Centre of FAW Group

Dr Li also drove the of petrol engines for the prestigious car range, and did much to provide FAW the confidence to build its own brand

I’m delighted that he is honoured by The University of Nottingham for his achievements.

“Looking forward, the with FAW on low carbon technologies is exciting and I am very pleased they are choosing to work our University as their first strategic partner. It is a testament to the and reputation of our research work, and strengthens our close links Asian industry.”

The research laboratory for FAW will be in the Faculty of Engineering at University in Nottingham, and the Project Leader is Yuying Yan. The research will commence later year.
