Midlands Consortium delighted to be chosen to host £1 billion energy institute
Date:9/21/2007

s news offers an outstanding opportunity for three distinguished universities to demonstrate the extent to which the United Kingdom is a significant force in the international market for knowledge and research excellence.

The choice of the Midlands Consortium is a measure of the quality and attractiveness of our intellectual capital at The University of Nottingham, and at Birmingham and Loughborough. It also recognises our many successful collaborations, and our close and hugely-valued partnerships with those leading regional economic development. Most importantly, it will allow us to make the most of our shared determination to help secure the well-being of future generations through our science and innovation.

The hub of the ETI will be based at Loughborough University, on the Holywell Park area of the campus, at the heart of the Universitys Science and Enterprise Park, and brings with it up to 50 new jobs in the region.

Professor Shirley Pearce, Loughborough Universitys Vice Chancellor, said the hub will be ideally situated at Holywell Park. We already have a concentration of low-carbon and energy research and development activities based at the Universitys Science and Enterprise Park. Locating the hub on this site will allow the Consortium to maximise the effective working of the ETI.

Advantage West Midlands Director of Innovation, Dr Philip Extance, added: Advantage West Midlands is delighted to support this strong collaboration of the three universities across the East and West Midlands. The location of the ETI hub in the Midlands pays testament not only to their research strength but also to the potential strength of firms in the regions to exploit the technology that is developed.

Dr Bryan Jackson OBE, Chairman of emda, commented: emda is delighted that ETI has recognised the industrial strengths in this region with companies such as E.ON UK, Caterpillar, Rolls-Royce, Toyota, Alstom, Siemens and EDF who all h
