This research area covers the study of materials and systems which store electrochemical, thermal or kinetic energy for later use.
This area looks at theories, methods and tools for generating, modelling, optimising, simulating and reasoning about complex engineered systems.
The vision for engineering capability is to identify and tackle fundamental engineering research challenges with the potential for lasting benefit to the UK.
The SDTaP programme supports the development of a safe and secure Internet of Things (IoT). This is achieved through investment into:
- PETRAS (Privacy, Ethics, Trust, Reliability, Acceptability and Security) National Centre of Excellence (NCE)
- Innovate UK demonstrator projects
- Innovate UK commercialisation programme
- EPSRC research grants.
This programme aims to bring together the systems that connect infrastructure – transport, utilities, communications and environmental management – to enable a better understanding of how they are affected by our changing environment and to develop opportunities for the UK economy.
The Digital Twins theme worked with colleagues across UKRI and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to coordinate the UKRI strategy in support of the development of the UK national capability in digital twinning and cyber-physical infrastructure.
Impact acceleration accounts (IAAs) are strategic awards providing funding to research
organisations to use creatively for a wide range of impact activities.
European Research Area (ERA-NET) on Coordinating Action in Plant Sciences (ERA-CAPS) aims to increase European and international collaboration to create and coordinate sustainable transnational plant science research programmes.
This research programme is co-funded by ESRC and the FCDO. It helps researchers to address key questions and build evidence in critical policy areas constraining education systems in developing countries.
Raising Learning Outcomes (RLO) provides concrete ideas for policy and practice on how to improve learning, and understanding of how these ideas will translate to specific contexts.
The aim of this programme is to enhance research capacity and accelerate the development of new or improved medical interventions for the identification, treatment and prevention of poverty-related infectious diseases. This includes emerging and re-emerging diseases in sub-Saharan Africa.
