To contribute to activities taking place as part of the COP26 Universities Network, we invited our students to submit an image they have photographed or created which relates to their research or other activities at Cranfield.

The winning images were:

  • 1st place: Shuxin Tang
  • 2nd place: Thomas Fungenzi
  • 3rd place: Nadine Dannemann

Their work can be viewed below.

Left: Shuxin Tang - Cranfield University supported ZeroAvia in achieving the world's first hydrogen fuel cell powered flight of a commercial-grade aircraft. It marks the first step towards the possibility of changing the primary energy source for commercial aviation from fossil fuels to zero-emission hydrogen energy.

Middle: Thomas Fungenzi - Soil is one of the most complex ecosystems on Earth. It is also our life support system, the foundation of our civilisation. In return, we must take care of soil health. We must focus our attention on soil, to pass on fertile grounds for future generations.

Right: Nadine Dannemann - This is Saeed, 27, from Saudi Arabia. He came to Cranfield University with the explicit mission to develop novel carbon capture materials to make the transition to green and sustainable energy happen. Upon graduating from his Advanced Chemical Engineering MSc, he wants to implement this technology in his home country.
