The strength of our research lies in the strength of our community

We are a community of researchers, industry partners and students. Are you interested in the work we do? Does your research or work fall into one of our themes? See below for how you can get involved.

We can support you with:

  • One-to-one introductions
  • Pump-priming for external funding bids
  • Networking opportunities
