6th GERG Academic Network Event, Copenhagen
The 6th GERG Academic event was held successfully at the International Gas Research Conference in Copenhagen in September, and reached its largest ever audience with over 500 attendees from the World’s Gas Research Community..
The event took centre stage with a great location outside the main Lecture Hall, adjacent to the coffee and lunch area ensuring a high footfall.
Abstracts of the 17 papers can be found here.
After an assessment exercise by a number of GERG senior representatives, prizes were awarded as follows:
First prize and EUR 3000 was awarded to Anton Verbeek from Twente University for 'Efficient Turbulence Enhancing Low Swirl Combustion’.
Second prize and EUR 2000 was awarded to Bjørn Morland, Oslo University, for 'Are the safe CCS transport recommendations safe?'
Third prize and EUR 1000 was awarded to two talents: Ashish Shah, Lund University, for 'Pre-chamber ignition systems for heavy duty engines' and Andras Perl, Hanze University, for 'Methane storage on Porous Activated Carbons’
Congratulations to the prizewinners and also to all the students who took the effort to prepare their posters, attend the event and discuss their work with the international community. We all look forward to the next GERG Academic Network event in Vienna in 2015.
