The ERA partnership consists of the eight universities of Midlands Innovation, and the British Geological Survey.

ERA Virtual Roadshows

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a series of virtual roadshows to showcase the work of the Energy Research Accelerator where we will introduce the work we do to progress new carbon-neutral energy innovations and take a look at our future focus towards achieving a net-zero future.

We will introduce you to the team and the work that has been undertaken so far, at our partner institutions and across our 23 facilities, and will explore the ways which you can engage with ERA, taking advantage of our wide network and strong links to policy makers and industry leaders. 

Some of the benefits of engaging with ERA are:

  • Membership of, and access to, the wider ERA community and opportunity to be part of our working groups.
  • Aid in applying for research grants in the form of idea generation and development and letters of support
  • Access for knowledge exchange at conferences and other events
  • Student involvement in our skills development programmes
  • Involvement in the development and implementation of the ERA Big Ideas and other future plans
  • Business development support through our industrial links
  • Use of ERA facilities at other institutions
  • Support with promotoion of your initiative through the ERA channels
