Research Profile Our success is underpinned by a culture of research excellence, creating impact for our partner companies and organisations both nationally and internationally. We achieve this through our internationally leading academics and our state-of-the-art research facilities and infrastructure. Our vision is to deliver high quality, interdisciplinary research to achieve global impact in the fields of low carbon mobility, healthcare and business. We have sixteen research groups undertaking applied research across five broad areas: Design, Materials, Manufacturing, Systems, and Business. Three major programmes also enable us to deliver our research. These are: the WMG centre High Value Manufacturing Catapult, the Institute of Digital Healthcare, and the International Institute for Product and Service Innovation. We have invested heavily in our world class academics, who all share a passion for applied research. Recent appointments have been made in the areas of steels processing, cyber security, advanced propulsion, structural composites, e-health innovation, nanocomposites, supply chain and operations, automation systems, vehicle electrification and energy storage, low carbon materials, energy for low carbon vehicles, and digital manufacturing. 10 www.wmg.warwick.ac.uk These new appointments come alongside a period of significant infrastructure expansion for WMG. Three new R&D centres provide WMG’s academics and researchers with the scope to work even more closely with collaborative partners from industry. Driven by research teams that combine both industrial and academic experience, we have been successful in attracting a broad portfolio of funding from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB), Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), European Union, Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng), as well as industrial funding from project partners. Research The Research Assessment Exercise 2008 confirmed the University of Warwick’s position as one of the UK’s leading research universities, ranking 7th overall of the UK multi-faculty institutions. A total of 65% of the University’s research activity is at a quality level of either 3* or 4* and in the unit of assessment that included WMG, 70% of research was ranked 3* and 4*. Warwick is also continually ranked within the top 10 UK universities. To make a big impact you need critical mass in expertise, laboratories and equipment. Private companies don’t give money as charity. In return for investment they will expect output, and we have a track record of excellent output over the past 25 years. This allows us not only to do impactful research, but to train people - creating top class researchers and entrepreneurs who will go on to be leaders on the global stage. Professor Lord Bhattacharyya, Chairman and Founder Research
