Forty new academic posts for Swansea University
9th January 2014
Forty new academic jobs are being created at Swansea University with £2.5m of funding for research into new coatings for materials.
The UK government money will go towards setting up a centre which will train researchers in how to develop new practical coatings for products.
New coatings on steel and glass could allow buildings to generate, store and release their own energy.
More durable coins and smart packaging would also be developed.
