The Royal Academy of Engineering has announced a £15 million partnership with the Lloyd’s Register Foundation to address critical challenges in engineering safety around the world. The partnership will build on the Academy’s network of global alliances to tackle the most pressing engineering safety and sustainability problems, and develop these into practical and accessible outputs for the engineering profession and affected communities.

Over five years, the partnership will allocate £15 million in funding to create communities of best practice and build global research collaborations to develop practical solutions. The partnership will initially focus on three topics:

  • Safer complex industrial and engineered systems 
  • Enhanced safety in decommissioning and end of engineering life 
  • Developing engineering skills where they are most needed 

The partnership may result in new standards, or codes of conduct, or even new approaches to engineering education, and will support programmes that have the most impact upon engineering practice globally.
