These are strategic awards provided to institutions (a full list is available) to respond to opportunities in flexible, responsive and creative ways, alighted to their institutional strategies and opportunities. 

His project ‘Heat pipes in thermal management of integrated motor drives’ aims to experimentally assess the use of advanced two-phase heat pipe technology in thermal management of IMDs. The research focus is placed on the hardware prototyping and testing of selected high-performance thermal management concepts incorporating custom heat pipe solutions.
