The GRC are proud to announce their involvement in the recently launched FLEXIS project.

The five-year, 24m EU-backed project was announced today by Welsh Government Finance Minister Jane Hutt AM during a visit to the University.

FLEXIS is a pan-Wales energy research project. Led by Cardiff University, FLEXIS includes the leading energy academics from Cardiff University, Swansea University and the University of South Wales, FLEXIS will focus on the development of an energy systems research capability in Wales, building on the world-class capability that already exists in these Universities in the energy area.

The project will tackle some of the most pressing issues currently facing society, such as climate change, rising energy prices and fuel poverty.

The main objectives of the project will be to develop collaborations with companies that will result in an increase in research funding coming into Wales, which in turn will result in a substantial increase in the number of good quality researchers working in this area.
