Welcome to the 20th edition of the Project Repository Journal (PRj) – your portal to the cutting-edge of multidisciplinary scientific research.

Interested in the cutting-edge innovations changing our world? Or how innovations journey from fanciful sounding dreams to the reality of our everyday lives? Perhaps you’re just a curious soul with a love for learning what’s new. Whatever your motivation, welcome to the twentieth issue of the Project Repository Journal.

In this issue, we’re proud to feature our collaboration with Vestas Aircoil. You may recall them from issue 14 and their work in developing high-performance heat exchangers for low emission power systems.

We caught up with them and the other partners involved in the new CP-Sens project to bring you the latest updates on their work. See Page 96.

Please get in touch with the EDMA team if you require further information about any of our contributors or would like more information on how you can take part.
