This research area focuses on the development of new catalysis concepts and catalytic processes, preparation of new or improved catalysts and studies to understand catalytic mechanisms.
This research area focuses on the development of novel chemical tools and technologies for the understanding of biology and the synthesis of biological and biologically active molecules.
This research area focuses on the study of rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions in gas and solution phase, and at surfaces.
The EPSRC circular economy theme aims to support and drive research and innovation relevant to the transition to a circular economy across the council’s remit.
Clinical technologies covers a range of areas relevant to developing new healthcare device solutions for diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and monitoring of disease, injury, or disability. Research in this space requires strong connection with users in the healthcare sector to maximise impact.
Research into coastal and waterway structures, management and flood defences, estuarine engineering, reservoir and dam engineering and hydrodynamics.
Theoretical and experimental studies of atomic and molecular species cooled to sub-millikelvin temperatures and their science applications.
The addressing of engineering challenges related to combustion dynamics through multi-scale modelling and experimental approaches.
Research into the characterisation, modelling, formulation and processing of complex fluids (for example blood, creams, pastes and emulsions)
This research area looks at the study of chemistry by computational or theoretical means, or development of new computational and theoretical methods.
