Our research institute is underpinned by scientific and engineering excellence across our core areas of expertise; tribology, corrosion and surface engineering. Because of the generic nature of the skills we have we see their application across diverse sectors from biomedical to transport to space.
Our research team consists of over 75 people who are engaged in projects across the length scales and at TRL levels from the basic science through to application and commercialisation. We work with public and private sector organisations in the UK and overseas.
