Collaborative and contract research
Partner with us and benefit from direct access to new ideas and innovative thinking. Our experienced researchers will work closely with you from formulation of the initial brief through to delivery of results.
Recent examples of collaborative and contract research projects carried out by our academics include:
The project aimed to monitor strain in structures using new types of concrete. City's major contribution was to develop, install and test these lightweight structures with compact fibre optic sensor systems.
School: Engineering and Mathematical Sciences
Industrial partners and funders: Macrete, ARUP, Creagh Concrete, Network Rail, and the Technology Strategy Board
Academic collaborator: Queen's University Belfast
The project aimed to develop open source framework for managing contracts and service level agreements for e-services. City's role within the project has concentrated on monitoring and forecasting the level of service provision across different layers of IT infrastructures as well as the provision of appropriate runtime information for substantiating penalty claims, when service level agreements and contracts are breached.
Funder: the European Commission
Collaborators: 17 academic and industrial partners from across seven European countries.
The Department of Optometry evaluated case finding strategies for primary open angle glaucoma by community optometrists. The aim of the project was to improve the method by which patients with the disease are detected and thus speed up the onset of treatment to prevent visual impairment.
School: Health Sciences
