National Physical Laboratory: collaboration with the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics of Planet EarthThe National Physical Laboratory's (NPL) partnership with the Mathematics for Planet Earth Centre for Doctoral Training (MPE CDT) allows the combined expertise related mathematical science, environmental science and measurement science to come together under the NPL-MPE CDT collaborative umbrella. Along with NPL's ongoing engagement with the MPE CDT towards joint studentship projects and joint events etc.
, there is an opportunity to further explore a closer training link.

Joshua Prettyman of the 2014 cohort holds an NPL-MPE CDT studentship and is working on “Tipping point analysis of geophysical variables”. Joshua is studying the so-called Essential Climate Variables, in particular, land surface humidity and sea-surface temperature, in order to understand natural- and anthropogenic-driven climate change.
Internships: during July-August 2015, Francesco Ferrulli of the 2014 cohort worked alongside NPL’s Strategic Research Fellow Dr Ivan Rungger.

Graphene is a new carbon based compound with a large number of applications that includes efficient renewable energy storage.
Panel discussion: in May 2016, the Grantham Institute and MPE CDT organised a joint event where experts discussed how mathematics can combat environmental problems, and their impact on society and business Faculty of Natural Sciences (FoNS) Corporate Partnerships team was and will develop scientific advances that will have international impact for years to come..
Prof Alistair Forbes (NPL) was a member of the panel of experts that led the discussion. At theMPE CDT's 'Sandpit' event: a new NPL-MPE CDT studentship was agreed. The proposed project will be on “Bayesian Inference with application to air quality monitoring”.
NPL scientist Dr Valerie Livina attended the MPE CDT Jamboree in 2014 and was impressed by the knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise of the MPE CDT students and staff members Since 2001, 27 new drugs that target kinases have been approved for clinical use with current sales of US$30 billion. The development of these drugs .
Subsequently, through a series of meetings, Dr Valerie Livina and Dr Tobias Kuna (MPE CDT staff member) developed a PhD project that was taken up by one of the MPE CDT students, Joshua Prettyman. Airbus Group Innovations: collaboration to develop and deploy the underpinning technology for Laminar Flow ControlThe Laminar Flow Control UK (LFC-UK) programme investigated the theoretical, computational and experimental fluid dynamics of flows past/around aeroplane wings and engines.
The overall objective was to reduce drag on aeroplane wings, and Airbus Group Innovations was a key partner in the programme.
Impact of open science methods and practices on the economics of
AGI made available 50% of the time of a Research Specialist on Flow Control to be made available over the duration of the project to work directly on project activities and to support technology pull-through to industry. In addition, AGI made a substantial direct financial contribution to the project as part of its involvement in the 'Smart Active Wing of the Future' Programme.
Several PhD students and postdocs undertook secondments at AGI and Airbus Operations hosted periodic workshops to facilitate knowledge exchange Regulatory environment, operating in the life sciences industry In the following case study, RSM provided a client with customized valuation services. subscribed to receive it or who we believe would have an interest in the topics discussed..

Multiwave Technologies AG: collaboration to speed up the design of metamaterialsResearchers in the Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics section are pairing with Swiss company Multiwave Technologies AG to work on algorithms that will accelerate the design phase of metamaterials and bring them to market quicker. Faculty of Natural Sciences (FoNS) Corporate Partnerships team was heavily involved in developing the collaboration between Multiwave Technologies AG and Imperial College London.
