U.S. Embassy Environment and Science Counsellor Jock Whittlesey visited the University of Aberdeen last week to learn more about the institution’s work in marine engineering and renewable energy.
Mr Whittlesey held a series of meetings within the University’s College of Physical Sciences during his visit which aimed to further links between the US and Scotland.
Mr Whittlesey said: “The University of Aberdeen has a strong global reputation in energy and marine research. I am enormously impressed by the ability of the University to link internationally, to do interdisciplinary research, to work with industry, and to work collaboratively with top class researchers from around the world.”
"Scotland matters to the United States. This is a relationship we care about, and want to nourish."
