Re-inventing our relationship with computers

A collaboration of researchers from the Universities of Oxford, Southampton and Nottingham are at the forefront of a new science that is finding ways in which computers can work intelligently in partnership with people. This could support the management of some of today's most challenging situations, such as the aftermath of major disasters and smart energy systems.

New project to create £14 million UK automotive battery pack research facility

The University of Oxford Department of Engineering Science will partner WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group), at the University of Warwick, which will lead a £14 million consortium to create a new automotive battery pack manufacturing research centre. The project will help develop the next generation of traction batteries for electric and hybrid vehicles. It will combine the best human and automated assembly methods to manufacture battery packs and lay the foundations of a new UK automotive supply chain based around this technology.

International collaboration to understand the human brain

Collaboration may have a claim to being the most overused world in academia (and one or two other places as well), but as the world accumulates more and more data and is able to study mechanisms and organisms at an ever smaller scale, then it is inevitable that more than one expertise is needed to describe the full story.
