Breakthrough Science & Technology

science and technology research

UCLan researchers are addressing some of the biggest (and smallest) science and technology challenges.

 These challenges include:

  • research at the interfaces of biological, chemical and physical sciences exploiting the unique advantages of nanoscale structures and materials
  • fundamental research into the physics of the Sun, stars, galaxies and the Universe
  • user-led, application-driven and cross-disciplinary research in areas such as digital manufacturing and advanced signal and image processing
  • nuclear safety and nuclear security
  • intelligent energy and the interaction between energy and society
