Breakthrough energy technology to power the developing world
Dr Kalpit Shah and Professor Behdad Moghtaderi from the Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources have developed a breakthrough sustainable energy technology that could help solve the challenge of rural electrification. The technology could have implications for two billion people globally who do not have access to modern fuels, such as oil and gas.
Research and innovation clusters:
partnering with business and industry
Our hubs and clusters are collaborative cross-disciplinary research networks uniting our expertise and driving knowledge exchange.
needle-free glucose tests
Professor Paul Dastoor and his team have developed a saliva-based glucose test using a 2D printer, which could spell the end of needles and blood tests for diabetics. Through multi-disciplinary collaboration with our research institutes as well as through commercialisation, our research has a true impact on society.
