Abstract:
Rodney will be discussing potential research opportunities that exist in China and how the UK CAER can plan to develop those relationships. UK President Eli Capilouto (plus other UK folks) recently visited China as part of the effort to develop new student pipelines and programs while our CAER folks pursued possible research / funding opportunities by visiting programs that support research into coal and clean coal technology. It has been observed that as federal funding into fossil fuel technology has fallen, China's investments have ramped up. China is really making the most investments right now, particularly with respect to coal use and also in the scale in which they are doing it; they are willing to pay for large scale tests that aren't going on anywhere else.
