The HTRC is a joint collaboration between the University of Birmingham and Rolls-Royce to enable production-scale research and experimentation.

COVID-19 risk assessment

At the HTRC, the health and safety our team members, partners, visitors and their families is of the utmost importance. To this end, the HTRC have generated a risk assessment in relation to the Covid-19 impact. This risk assessment details the identified risks and associated control measures which all relevant persons must comply with. This is further supported by operational specific risk assessments, Covid-19 specific protocols, cleaning regimes and safe systems of work. This risk assessment will be reviewed on a periodic basis in line with government guidance and best practice and operational reviews are carried out daily to ensure the ongoing health and safety of those impacted by Centre operations and activities.
