C-NET's collaborative research programmes and facilities build on existing capabilities across The University of Manchester in key disciplines such as materials performance, computational fluid dynamics, applied nuclear physics, and structural integrity. In addition to reactor technology, engineering and science, C-NET also carries out studies on the economic, management and socio-political aspects of nuclear energy.
The Centre for Process Integration (CPI) is a world leader in the field of conceptual process design. The methodologies developed allow environmentally friendly process design with the most efficient use of raw materials, energy and capital. The Centre enjoys an outstanding international reputation for the quality of its work, gained from many years of successful research and technology transfer.
Dalton Nuclear Institute (DNI)
Research by the School at the Institute is focused on the sustainability of nuclear power on a life cycle basis relative to other energy options, including fossil and renewables. We aim to enhance the safe and secure supply of affordable, low carbon energy world-wide by developing and delivering the research and skills required to address key challenges in the field of nuclear energy.
The International Centre for Advanced Materials (ICAM) is leading research that seeks to advance the fundamental understanding and use of advanced materials across a variety of energy and industrial applications. Established in 2012, the ten-year $100m investment programme is modelled on a "Hub and Spoke" structure, with the "hub" located within The University of Manchester.
Focusing on advanced quantitative approaches to specific biotechnology challenges at the interface between medicine and biology and the physical sciences, engineering, mathematics and computation, the MIB brings together researchers from a range of disciplines and enjoys a unique pluralistic and open research culture supported by a world-class infrastructure.
The University and Greater Manchester NHS and Primary Care Organisations have joined forces to create MIMIT™ - an initiative which facilitates collaborations between clinicians, scientists, engineers and industry to develop innovative technology for patient benefit. MIMIT™ seizes opportunities to enable clinical problems to be identified more readily and, most importantly, improve patient outcomes by bringing innovative technology developments to fruition.
Photon Science Institute (PSI)
The Institute provides an innovative and interdisciplinary environment for research into and the application of photon science - the understanding of how light interacts with matter. The Institute fosters collaborations across the physical, engineering, material, medical and biological sciences to produce high-quality research and knowledge transfer.
The Sustainable Consumption Institute is a University Inter-disciplinary research institute focusing on the challenge of how to reshape consumption in order to achieve sustainability. Research programmes focus on understanding consumer choices, habits and routines and how they can become more sustainable; accelerating sustainable innovation in products, services and systems; exploring alternative framings of sustainable consumption and the politics underpinning them and; developing novel methodologies to advance the evidence base on sustainable consumption.
