The University of Manchester is announcing two funded PhD projects for EU/UK students on the topics of Offshore Renewable Energy and Boienergy.

This project forms part of the Climate Emergency DTP, a new research cluster within the Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Manchester. The United Nations Paris Agreement from 2015 sets out a highly ambitious global challenge to tackle rising greenhouse gas emissions, and ultimately transform energy, industrial and agricultural systems worldwide. This DTP will foster interdisciplinary research to deliver creative, innovative and transformational engineering solutions that address the climate emergency.


Greater Manchester aims to be carbon neutral by 2038. One of the largest emitters in the region is Manchester Airport, which annually handles over 200,000 flights, from 28 million passengers and more than 117,000 tonnes of freight. Quantifying and subsequently reducing the carbon footprint of Manchester Airport is a key component of the goal of carbon neutral Manchester.
