As reported by the GSK Media Centre GSK and The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) announced that they will contribute to the funding for a Chair in Sustainable Chemistry to be based at the planned GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry at the University of Nottingham.

That is why we are delighted to collaborate with EPSRC to jointly contribute to the funding of this new Chair. We hope this support will enable the University of Nottingham to attract a world class leader, helping to forge stronger links between industry and academia and encourage more young people into science.”
