Universities minister Jo Johnson opens Centre for Atmospheric & Emissions Research
Jo Johnson, minister of state for universities, science, research & innovation, officially opened the Cranfield University / NCAS Centre for Atmospheric & Emissions Research yesterday (02/02/2017).
The £3m research hub - the result of joint investment from NERC, the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) and Cranfield University - provides a collaborative space for advanced research, and will be home to Cranfield's Centre for Atmospheric Informatics & Emissions Technology (CAIET) and the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM). Universities & science minister, Jo Johnson, said:
"Climate change and reducing emissions is one of the most important challenges of our time, and the UK takes a proud leadership role in fostering positive action. Greater knowledge and the development of new technologies is crucial to this. This investment is a prime example of the projects our industrial strategy will support - enabling UK scientists to carry out pioneering work that will ensure the UK remains at the forefront of climate change science and leads an international effort to improve the environment for future generations."
