The UK has one of the best offshore wind resources in the world, comprising 50% of Europe’s tidal energy and 35% of its wave energy. Through this programme, NERC supports partnerships between the academic research base and the offshore renewable energy sector to help capitalise on this resource.
The Open World Research Initiative (OWRI) ran from 2016 to 2020 with four research programmes to demonstrate the value of modern languages in a globalised research environment. The projects showcased the crucial role that languages play within arts and humanities, and key contemporary issues.
This research area covers the development and application of advanced analytical methods to support improved decision making, especially in relation to the operation of complex and uncertain systems.
This research area focuses on novel techniques and systems for transporting information by fibre-guided or free-space photons, including analogue and digital signals.
This research area focuses on the design, modelling, fabrication, processing and evaluation of new or improved devices and systems whose quantum unit is the photon.
This research area looks at the design, modelling, fabrication and processing of new or improved active semiconductor-based devices and systems that use electrons and photons.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council particle astrophysics programme is helping to answer some of the fundamental questions of the Universe. It focuses on gravitational waves, gamma ray astronomy, neutrinos and the search for dark matter.
STFC supports UK physicists working on particle physics projects across the world. It includes funding STFC facilities such as the particle physics department at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and contributing to international facilities such as CERN.
This research area encompasses growth, formation, processing, measurement, characterisation and multi-scale modelling of dry or wet particulate systems and fluid-particle systems.
Pathways to antimicrobial clinical efficacy (PACE) aims to accelerate early-stage translational innovation to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR). It will support early-phase antimicrobial and diagnostic projects that address the world’s most threatening pathogens, moving innovations faster towards clinical trials and to people affected by antimicrobial resistance.
