Research and the green economy

Academic research propels our transition to net zero. And right now, it’s an exciting place to be. Work conducted in labs and research centres across the UK is unlocking answers to decarbonising industry and shaping tomorrow’s jobs in the green economy.

Madhi Ahmed, a researcher in sustainable energy choices at the University of Sheffield, recently attended IDRIC’s Early Career Research Industry and Policy Engagement Workshop in London. The event sought to create closer links between academia and researchers to accelerate the deployment of new low carbon technologies.

Madhi says: “Just being here has been great. I’ve connected with other researchers in my field and learnt how to shape my work to maximise its commercial application. I stayed in academic research to make a real contribution to net zero. Being part of a community of researchers like this and really understanding what industry needs is key to achieving that.”
