We work closely with a range of partners to ensure the relevancy of our research. In addition to academic impact, we also recognise the importance and benefits of establishing strong relationships with both public and private organisations to ensure that research findings influence real-world practice and policy. By its very nature, our research is highly interdisciplinary, and we are involved in collaborations with colleagues in water and geotechnical engineering (e.g. through our partnership with CESER), structural engineering, transport engineering, computing science, architecture and geography. These collaborations allows us to interact with industry professionals from a broad range of backgrounds and organisations, in addition to practitioners from our own field.
