Ethiopian delegation visits University

A delegation of Ethiopian academics, business leaders and diplomats visited the University to explore possible collaborations.

Ethiopian ambassador to the UK, Ambassador Berhanu Kebede; Head of Nano research at the University of Gondar, Dr Birhanu Tulu, and Ethiopia representative for NanoLandGlobal, Abiy Negussie were welcomed by Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Innovation and Partnerships, Professor Steve Holloway.

The visit was the outcome of efforts made by alumnus Dermott Reilly, CEO of NanoLandGlobal. Mr Reilly’s firm is seeking to strengthen links between the two countries.

The delegation was taken on a short tour of the University’s Micro Bio Refinery, Centre for Materials Discovery and Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy. The visitors also received an insight into the Materials Innovation Factory, currently under construction.
