GLT CEO Professor Martin Atkins has received an award from the Chinese Central Government in recognition of his excellent contribution in promoting science and technology cooperation between China and the UK in both business and academia.

Professor Atkins has a long history of close collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics where he worked on developing novel clean technologies and renewable energies.

It is a great honour to receive such a prestigious award from the Ambassador reflecting many years of collaboration in science and technology with our colleagues in China. Many of these pioneering works started more than a decade ago are now reaching fruition and commercialisation. A great example of team efforts between UK and Chinese scientists.‘ – Martin Atkins
