From tackling cancer, to making our cities greener, to creating smart textiles that improve and save lives; we’re making major breakthroughs across our five key themes. And, through our thriving research culture, we’re also creating the innovators of the future who will continue to have an impact on world problems.

We also fund more contemporary research including the design and effectiveness of digital content and the impact of artificial intelligence.
