Research within TFI is organised into three main interrelated themes:
The Institute's vision and strategy is to develop internationally leading applications focused research. We have a long tradition of applied, collaborative research working with industrial partners. The Tees Valley is a major centre for the chemical and process industries, with an innovative industrial base and companies are actively involved in developing future technologies such as clean manufacture, biotechnology, biofuels, hydrogen technologies and printable electronics. The Institute has strong, active research links with ABB, SABIC, Johnson Matthey and Lucite International, members of one of the EU’s largest manufacturing hubs based in the Tees Valley.
As well as developing applications-focused new knowledge and technologies, the Institute provides a wide range of services through its strong, long-standing relationships with public and private sector organisations. Collaborators and partners include some of the world’s leading companies and research organisations such as Rolls-Royce, IBM, Qatar Project Management, HOCHTIEF-Vicon and Ramboll and universities and research institutes such as Sheffield, Manchester, Oxford, VTT Finland, Tokyo.
The Institute has been particularly successful in exploiting knowledge and technology transfer mechanisms, including knowledge transfer partnerships and supporting start up and spin out companies as a route to securing impact.
There is a wealth of research projects taking place to further knowledge and make an impact on people's lives.
