Sustainable Societies

The University of Nottingham is working with the Ningbo Government on a major international project to build on the city’s reputation as a centre for the marine industry.

The Ningbo Nottingham International Academy for Marine Economy and Technology (IAMET) is drawing on the input and advice of independent, world-leading academic and industry experts to deliver innovative programmes and research in sectors including port services and logistics, marine advanced materials, biological products and environmental management.

To date, IAMET has raised £2.3 million for collaborative research projects. These include research and development for new renewable energy storage technologies, manufacturing products from recycled plastics and hybrid power generation for ships.
