The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) invests in manufacturing research, drawing on emerging opportunities from across the engineering, physical, biological and mathematical sciences. It connects the research, innovation and business landscape.
This research area covers the study and research of devices and systems to capture and utilise the kinetic or oscillatory energy of bodies of water.
Understanding, modelling and processing ceramics with respect to the properties, performance, behaviour and development of novel materials.
Understanding, modelling and processing composites with respect to the properties, performance, behaviour and development of novel materials.
Understanding, modelling and processing of metals and alloys with respect to the properties and material behaviour and development of novel materials.
This research area focuses on the synthesis, characterisation and theoretical understanding of functional materials to be used in energy applications.
Quantifying change, with a key role played by fundamental notions of continuity and approximation.
Mathematical biology covers research into the development and application of state-of-the-art mathematical or statistical tools and techniques to investigate biological processes and systems, including those of relevance to the medical sciences.
This research area is concerned with developing new mathematics inspired by, or relevant to, physics.
Research in mathematical sciences is key for the advancement of all areas of science and technology, and a vital area of science in itself. Our aim is to sustain core research capability, while promoting transformative and cross-disciplinary research that has the potential for significant impact.
