Sêr Cymru programme
The Welsh Government has committed up to £50 million to the Sêr Cymru programme to enhance and build upon the research capability in Wales.
In June 2013, the Welsh Government proudly announced the appointment of a Sêr Cymru Research Chair in Neurobiology - Professor Yves-Alain Barde - to the School of Biosciences at Cardiff University; Professor Barde’s research in neurobiology strengthens the outstanding neuroscience research that already exists in Cardiff University.
The Welsh Government is now proud to announce that a further Sêr Cymru Research Chair appointment has now been made to Professor James Durrant.
Professor Durrant’s research areas are in polymer and organic pholtovoltaics and he will be located in the College of Engineering at Swansea University. The appointment will be formally known as the Sêr Cymru Research Chair in Solar Energy Research.
Professor Durrant will establish and lead a world class, dedicated research facility at a new Solar Futures Laboratory (SFL) based within the EPSRC funded SPECIFIC Innovation and Knowledge Centre at Baglan which will be a unique partnership between universities in Wales (led by Swansea) and Imperial College London.
The Welsh Government is very pleased to extend a warm welcome to our new Sêr Cymru Research Chairs and looks forward to seeing a very productive research programme and the building of a team of research excellence that commands world renown and presence.
The appointments of these truly outstanding researchers to Wales is a reflection of the importance of the Sêr Cymru research programme and the regard and status Welsh Universities hold on an international stage.
The Welsh Government’s Sêr Cymru programme invites proposals for Research Chairs in each of the three Grand Challenge research areas identified in the 'Science for Wales' strategy.
- Advanced engineering and materials
- Life sciences and health
- Low carbon, energy and environment
Universities are expected to contribute to the funding in a flexible manner, and contributions may also be augmented by sources such as industry and the European Union.
