Our discoveries in sustainable materials and technologies will drive the vehicles of the future.

Propulsion in transport is on the cusp of a revolution and societies are being challenged to think differently about how we move people and goods.

Greener, electric transport will be at the heart of this revolution. We are driving the discovery and translation of new materials, components and technologies needed for this new age of sustainable transport.

Our world-leading expertise in sustainable materials and transport technologies will place us at the forefront of this challenge and secure huge economic and strategic benefits for the UK.

Our mission

We will develop the next generation of high power density and low-loss electrical machines that are able to drive the propulsion systems of the future, underpinned by innovative sustainable materials.

The form of these new aircraft, ships and land vehicles will evolve over time. But all will require propulsion systems that exceed the performance of today’s vehicles, without putting strains on our environment and resources.

By helping to deliver vehicles that no longer have such a destructive impact on the environment, we will benefit societies across the world, making unprecedented advances in fuel savings and carbon-neutral travel.

We are looking for talented individuals to join each of our Beacons to help us continue with our world-changing research. These include:
