The Royal Society of Chemistry is pleased to collaborate with the Chinese Society of Chemical Science and Technology based in London (CSCST-UK)  to sponsor two young scientists* based in the UK to go back to China to seek collaboration or get further experience and skills to enhance their research project in the UK. These travel grants are given annually and the prize certificates are presented at the annual Joint Annual Conference of CSCST-SCI.

Dr Shangfeng Du, a Research Fellow at the School of Chemical Engineering, University of Birmingham, was the 2016 recipient of the RSC - CSCST-UK travel grant. This collaborative grant between the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Chinese Society of Chemical Science and Technology based in London (CSCST-UK) enables a UK-based early career scientist to travel to China to seek further collaboration opportunities in China. 

Dr Du has written a personal trip diary covering his trip to China from the 5-9 April 2016. A summary of his trip diary is published below. 

Sponsored by the RSC - CSCST-UK travel grant, I visited Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IPE-CAS) on 6-8 Apr 2016. During this visit, I gave a seminar and had discussions with a few groups in the Institute. Several potential research collaborations were established between both institutes based on the strong research resources of CHFCR in fuel cell devices and the IPE-CAS in materials research. 

I arrived at Beijing Jiannianhua Hotel in the evening on 5th April, where I stayed for the whole visiting period. After supper, I got my talk prepared for the next day.
