Under a scheme run by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, a group set up by Prince Albert to help British innovation, Marta Ferran Marqués, who is working with Dagenham-based Sensor Coating Systems, is receiving £80,000 for a project which will help limit CO2 emissions.

Marta is working on a system which maps the inside of engines using temperature-sensing coatings, which could lead to improvements in CO2 emissions from the aerospace industry.

The PhD student is one of 12 scientists and engineers to receive funding, with other projects including a photocopier of human blood cells, and a system for boats to ‘talk’ to humans.

Bernard Taylor, chairman of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, said: “It is critical that the young scientists and engineers that form the future innovation landscape of Britain are supported in their efforts. Our fellowships provide funding to the most promising technologies that will enrich British industry.”
