About the centre

The Sustainable Hydrogen (SusHy) Centre for Doctoral Training is a collaboration between the Universities of Nottingham, Loughborough, Birmingham and Ulster. The SusHy CDT has four overarching centre objectives:

  1. Deliver high quality transdisciplinary training, covering fundamental science, applied engineering, and systems issues and build an appreciation of societal barriers to innovation.
  2. Through innovation opportunities, build initiative and stimulate an entrepreneurial mind-set.
  3. Deliver “industry ready” doctorates who have a comprehensive skill set and experiences.
  4. Co-create research ideas and undertake in partnership with our stakeholders, cutting edge investigations of hydrogen-based solutions to deep decarbonisation of the energy system.


Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council

The centre is supported by the Engineering and Sciences Research Council and industrial partners and is seeking to train at least 67 PhDs across five years of intake to achieve the mass uptake of hydrogen technologies in the UK and beyond.

Women's Engineering Society

We are proud partners of the Women's Engineering Society a charity and professional network of women engineers, scientists and technologists offering inspiration, support and professional development. 

Women in Science and Engineering

As members of Women in Science and Engineering we are pleased to support their campaign for gender balance in science, technology and engineering.
