We strive to engineer a difference and for our research to have a real impact.

Our impact strategy aims to increase the reach and significance of economic, societal, health and knowledge benefits derived from our research. We support the evolution of research ideas from fundamental levels to commercially viable and impactful outputs.

We have identified the following impact sectors:

  • Industry - our strong history of industrial collaboration has resulted in many economic and environmental benefits with companies such as Rolls-Royce UTC, Tata Steel and Aribus.
  • Health - our research engages public sector bodies such as the NHS and industry in areas from advanced rheometry for complex fluids to pharmaceutical and health applications. 
  • Public Engagement - our work with Bloodhound SSC and the energy positive and carbon neutral projects have let us share our research, engineering concepts and knowledge with the world.
