All aspects of fundamental fluid dynamics research applied to aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, turbulence and areas relevant to process engineering.
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) aims to support world-class research to advance understanding of how nutritious, healthy and safe foods can be sustainably generated, and how nutrients, foods and whole diets interact with biological systems to promote health.
This research area focuses on the study of fundamental, generic and applied concepts concerning the conversion of coal, oil and gas into electricity for grid use, and the integration of these technologies into the renewable sector.
Frontier bioscience is pioneering, innovative and creative research that can lead to far-reaching discoveries. The support for this area is central to Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC)’s mission to advance knowledge and technology.
This research area focuses on the study of devices which generate electricity directly through the oxidation of fuel.
This research area focuses on the synthesis, characterisation and theoretical understanding of functional ceramic and inorganic materials.
The aim of the Future Data Services (FDS) programme is to establish what is needed for the next generation of data services beyond 2024.
To achieve this, ESRC is:
Building the aviation ecosystem needed to speed up the introduction of electric sub-regional aircraft, advanced air mobility vehicles and drones into the UK.
It works with industry, academia, government and regulators to transform how we connect people, deliver goods and provide services.
The aim of this research programme is to substantially improve both decadal and longer-term projections of ice loss and sea level rise originating from Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica.
This programme aims to understand the environmental and societal benefits of landscapes in which trees play a significant role. It will bring together environmental scientists, social scientists, economists, and arts and humanities researchers to form large research collaborations.
