Bradford Professor organises Energy and Water Security Workshop in Doha, Qatar

This month Bradford's School of Engineering Professor, Iqbal Mujtaba, held a 3 day workshop on 'Energy and Water Security' in Doha.

The workshop, organised with the financial support of British Council, Texas A&M University (Qatar) encouraged young academic and industrial researchers to present their research and knowledge transfer ideas in water and energy.

Fourteen participants from UK universities (Bradford, Imperial, UCL, Hull, Surrey, Southbank and Swansea) and industry (HEXXCELL Ltd) including Dr. Patel and Dr. Rajamani from the University of Bradford attended the workshop.

Science and Engineering plays an increasingly vital role in securing the current and future needs of planet Earth: from carbon capture to sustainable energy generation and from water supply to waste management by developing new technology, know-how, and practical solutions. To meet the exponentially growing water and energy demands required to improve quality of life, securing sustainable energy and water supplies are important challenges for scientists and engineers today.

Iqbal Mujtaba, Professor of Computational Process Engineering at the University of Bradford said: "We have been delighted to organise this event on ‘Energy and Water Security’ where UK scientists and engineers with both academic and industrial backgrounds got together for three days, to address Energy and Water issues.  

“The workshop certainly opened the door for future multidisciplinary research and knowledge transfer activities tackling global energy and water problems.”
