Research with impact
Committed to excellence and impact, we provide an environment where our academics and postgraduate researchers can excel and develop knowledge and understanding to build the societies of the future. Research is one of the founding blocks of our mission to advance knowledge and transform lives.
Drawing on our excellent record in attracting research funds, currently standing at over £19 million, the focal point of the School is innovative and industry-relevant research. This continues to nurture and refresh our long history of working closely with industrial partners on novel collaborative research, and informs our ongoing innovative teaching and extensive enterprise activities.
We are delighted to announce that Loughborough University is taking the lead on £1.3 million of investment by the UK Government in infrastructure delivery and maintenance. Laboratory of Modern Methods of Infrastructure Delivery and Maintenance (LM3D) adds entirely new capabilities to the UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure & Cities (UKCRIC) around modern methods of delivery and maintenance of infrastructure. It will consist of new equipment to support modern methods of inspection, maintenance and repair, including robotic manipulation. This will enable numerous research opportunities around the themes of infrastructure resilience to environmental and usage change, and emissions reductions.
