U-M joins with Chinese university to jointly fund renewable energy and biomedical research projects
Date:3/29/2010

ANN ARBOR, Mich.---The University of Michigan and Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China today launched two programs to jointly fund renewable energy and biomedical research projects involving investigators from both universities.

The goal of the renewable-energy program is to develop new technologies that reduce global carbon emissions and their impact on climate change. The biomedical collaboration will spur technological advances that improve human health.

"The research strengths of our two universities are quite complementary," said Stephen Forrest, U-M vice president for research.

"By collaborating on renewable energy and biomedical research projects, we have a unique opportunity to move our innovations much more quickly toward the marketplace, where they can begin to benefit people across the globe," Forrest said.

"I cannot think of two other areas of research that can have a greater impact on the environment and the quality of life of people worldwide," he said.

Each university is committing $3 million over five years---the first phase of the program. The first call for research proposals is being issued today in Ann Arbor and Shanghai. The first grants---each with a maximum annual funding of $200,000---are expected to be awarded in late June. Each team must include researchers from U-M and SJTU.

Areas likely to be funded by the Collaborative Research Program in Renewable Energy Science and Technology include clean coal technology, building efficiency and clean vehicles.

The goal of the initial five-year seed phase of the project is to identify renewable energy projects that have commercialization potential and that are likely to attract follow-on research funding from the U.S. and Chinese governments, as well as from industry. The collaboration will take advantage of funding opportunities expected to be offered by both the U.S. Department of Energy and the Chinese government.
