UMass TIMBR Investigators Participate in New University Multilateral Research Collaborations Created by U.S. and UK Governments to Address Global Issues

UMass has partnered with Aston University (UK), University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (China), University of Kentucky, and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) to develop the Global Bioenergy, Biofuels and Biorefining Network: GB3-Net.
The new multilateral university partnerships are created by the Global Innovation Initiative, a program funded by the U.S. and UK governments to foster multilateral research collaboration with higher education institutions in Brazil, China, India and Indonesia. The goals of this joint effort between the U.S. and UK are to raise the bar for international collaboration while developing a new cadre of globally-savvy individuals, enhancing global research capacity, strengthening higher education institutional cooperation, and promoting the benefits of multilateral partnerships.
