SOLVE magazine highlights cross-disciplinary research performance and impact from researchers across the University
As a university, we have a responsibility to communicate what we are learning.
Only by sharing our knowledge will we succeed as a community and as a nation. That's why we're producing SOLVE magazine – to share as scientists and educators our research and knowledge-building that stand to make a difference to the world.
Introducing the current issue
In this edition of SOLVE, you can read about a study which may point the way towards cushioning the pains of ageing. A revolution in sports bras, driven by biomechanics. An algorithm with potential to transform the experience of bowel cancer. The discovery of new dinosaurs. And recommendations for tackling corruption that mars major sporting events.
This issue also spotlights significant initiatives based at the University. Revolution Plastics is our bold venture to build a globe-spanning plastics economy based on circular principles. Mission Space harnesses a wealth of expertise to put a rocket under the UK space sector. And our Centre for Creative and Immersive Extended Reality offers students and organisations a portal into worlds of their own devising.
Experts from across our faculties also share their insights and research aspirations across a host of pressing topics – from the cost of living crisis, to sustainable finance and renewable energy. I hope you find this a fascinating read and a source of optimism.
