Research collaborations

Please read (updated 18 June 2020): COVID-19 notice

Many of the technologies we work on are ‘enabling’, photonics, electronics and nanotechnology enable applications in almost every industrial sector.

We work with partners in sectors including ICT, aerospace, healthcare, and defence and security. Many of the technologies developed here have found their way into commercial production as a result of successful university-industry partnerships, such as high power fibre lasers, optical fibre sensors for the oil and gas industry and electronics printed on to textiles. To find out more, read our case studies.

We have a number of programmes to facilitate research collaborations. Please find out more using the links below:
