Birmingham has been at the forefront of transplants since the pioneering work of Sir Peter Medawar. Our researchers are continuing his legacy.
Developing the use of sensors and clocks in innovative, ground-breaking technologies to change the future landscapes of healthcare, transport, defence, civil engineering and more.
Academia partnering with business, investigating, developing and co-creating robust and innovative solutions to achieve responsible business success. Building the foundations for a more responsible and sustainable future.
We are working with partners across the globe to understand how to save lives at risk from poor air quality.
Challenging established views and policy responses to migration and its impact on societies in a rapidly changing world.
Birmingham academics work on major issues in international ethics and global justice and train the next generation of students to tackle these issues.
We explore what it means to be human – in historical and cultural contexts, within ethical and legal norms and through languages and communication.
From atoms to astronomy, computers to cars and robots to robust materials, our goal is to transform our understanding of the world to make life easier, healthier and more sustainable.
Across the breadth of life and environmental sciences we discover, apply and translate science, forging major advances in human and environmental health.
With over 1,000 academic staff researchers and around £80 million new research funding per year, we are dedicated to performing world-leading research with the ultimate goal of improving human health.
We address the challenges facing society and the economy, from shedding light on the refugee crisis, to character education in schools, through to developing leaders in the NHS.
Thermal Energy research is one of three work streams that form the Energy Research Accelerator (ERA), a capital investment of £60million from Government capital funding, supported by an additional £120 million of co-investment secured by industry and academic partners.Thermal energy, both hot and cold, is one of the major energy challenges. The provision of cold, or cooling, is integral to modern society; without it, the supply of food, medicine and data would simply break down. Yet cooling currently consumes large amounts of energy and causes a great deal of pollution.ERA is working collaboratively with the Birmingham Energy Institute, Midlands Innovation universities and other partners, to drive the development and integration of a range of thermal and cryo-energy technologies. These will deliver jobs and apprenticeships, wealth creation and the next generation of scientists and engineers in the energy sector and emerging industries. ERA is working to support thermal and cryogenic research and is both investing in and utilising a number of facilities.
“The Energy Research Accelerator… will put the Midlands at the heart of international energy research and development”
