Manufacturing highly efficient and scalable electrolysers via screen-printing technology

Project Description

Clear aim and hypothesis

This project will realise the manufacturing of mass producible aqueous based (acidic) electrolyser units based upon screen-printing technology. Highly efficient 2D nanomaterials for optimal hydrogen and OERs will be fabricated and incorporated into bespoke screen-printable inks. In order to allow the manufacturing of efficient cathodes allowing a complete and novel prototype electrolyser to be produced.

Methodology and innovations

The supervisory team has extensive knowledge the fabrication of novel 2D material and screen-printing techniques. The use of screen-printing allows scalable routes to fabricating electrocatalytic platforms for generating hydrogen at low cost and high efficiency. 2D materials will be design and fabricated using wet chemical techniques.


Applicants must apply using the online form on the University Alliance website at https://unialliance.ac.uk/dta/cofund/how-to-apply-2/. Full details of the programme, eligibility details and a list of available research projects can be seen at https://unialliance.ac.uk/dta/cofund/

The final deadline for application is 12 April 2019.

Funding Notes

DTA3/COFUND participants will be employed for 36 months with a minimum salary of (approximately) £20,989 per annum. Tuition fees will waived for DTA3/COFUND participants who will also be able to access an annual DTA elective bursary to enable attendance at DTA training events and interact with colleagues across the Doctoral Training Alliance(s).
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 801604.
