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.
Recognition, understanding and synthesis of human speech, using a range of techniques and focusing on how systems recognise and generate the sounds of language.
This research area covers the study of the property of electrons known as ‘spin’ and its potential exploitation in specially designed devices.
Statistical methodology and development of new probabilistic techniques inspired by applications.
This fund helps areas of the UK build on existing strengths in research and innovation to deliver benefits for their local economy. Projects focus on a self-defined area anywhere in the UK, not limited by nations or regions.
Addressing the civil engineering challenges associated with construction materials, structural analysis, and extreme events and structural resilience.
This research area focuses on the synthesis, characterisation and fundamental physics of superconducting materials and devices.
This research area focuses on understanding the structure, processes, dynamics and functionality of surfaces and interfaces, and how they determine chemical and physical properties.
The aim of this programme is to model estuarine water flows and use this knowledge to better manage these coastal zones. The programme will use the intense data collection calibration and validation phase of the Surface Water and Ocean Topography mission to achieve this.
