This research area looks at techniques and applications that use and propagate signals, and related research supporting future connected infrastructure.
Design and development of novel device architectures throughout the radio frequency, microwave, millimetre wave and terahertz domain.
The aim of this programme is to support the research needed to understand the risks posed by plastic pollution in low and middle income countries. It will explore which interventions, policies and regulations can mitigate these risks, enabling a cleaner, more resilient and productive environment.
In engineering and physical sciences research, a world-class infrastructure comprises not just large high-specification equipment and access to central facilities but also the distributed investment in laboratory-based equipment and the technical support needed to ensure its productivity.
The novel physical design and development of robotic systems, for both fundamental and applied purposes.
The ‘robots for a safer world’ challenge focused on research and innovation in advanced robotics and autonomous systems.
It aimed to create a safer working world for humans by taking them out of extreme environments such as places that are difficult or dangerous for humans to access.
Improve population health, tackle the health inequalities affecting people and communities, and advance interventions that keep us healthier for longer.
This research area covers the development, optimisation and integration of devices that detect and measure changes in temperature, pressure, vibration and light, for example.
This area explores research into the design, implementation and maintenance of software, enabling development of software that is dependable, efficient and maintainable.
This research area covers the research and development of devices to harness incident solar radiation for conversion to other energy vectors or for direct use.
