We continue to improve our approach to impact reporting.
STFC key in enabling today’s high-resolution MRI scanners: STFC played a major role in enabling today’s high-resolution MRI scanners, which are the result of over 70 years of research. This is a key example of how fundamental research can contribute significantly to socio-economic benefits, but can take a long time to be realised.
UK reaps significant rewards from CERN membership: A recent independent evaluation, which was able to monetise some of the benefits to the UK of membership of CERN, concludes that in the past decade the UK participation in CERN science has delivered a financial return close to investment and brought additional exceptional benefits in terms of science, society, and innovation.
Aviation’s ACID test: Air travel has grown exponentially, with 100 million passengers in 1960, compared to 3.7 billion today. With such large numbers of travellers, security is paramount. STFC supported researchers are developing two disruptive technologies to produce the fastest and most reliable automatic contraband identification security scanner.
Satavia makes aviation ‘smarter’ and greener by providing environmental data and analytics that can be used by aircraft operators, manufacturers and maintenance companies to reduce damage to aircraft engines and components.
Researchers based at the STFC Hartree® Centre worked with Johnson Matthey, using computational techniques to automate and accelerate the process of identifying properties of novel chemical formulations.
Researchers based at the STFC Hartree® Centre worked with worked with Peel Ports Group – a leading UK port operator – to reduce uncertainty in available draft on vessels arriving and departing in ports using AI.
Researchers based at the STFC Hartree® Centre are working with Unilever, using advanced in-silico modelling capabilities to drive understanding into antimicrobial peptide interactions for future product development.
As part of an Innovate UK funded project, the STFC Hartree® Centre worked with Chilton Computing, Huduma and Oxfordshire County Council as part of a consortium focusing on cyber security in connected autonomous vehicles.
Researchers based at the STFC Hartree® Centre worked with AstraZeneca – to optimise their chemical manufacturing processes, saving time and costs in large scale product production and manufacturing.
Unilever and the STFC Hartree® Centre are employing computational modelling to study detailed dynamics of emulsions to optimise innovative manufacturing processes.
