What we do
The TSBE Centre hosts and supports industry engaged research projects across all Built Environment research groups. We are here to link forward thinking businesses with world leading research while supporting our researchers in meeting the needs of industry.
Applied knowledge is fundamental to the School of the Built Environment and is central to our teaching and research activity. We have always worked closely with industry partners and value the role this plays in informing research with beneficial impact across urban life. Our experience in hosting an EPSRC Industrial Doctorate Centre engaged a strong network of industry partners and fuelled research strands embracing the challenges facing industry today. Our industry engaged research now encompasses diverse project types from student dissertations, through sponsored doctorates to Innovate UK funded partnerships and beyond.
Operating from a dedicated suite of offices at the University of Reading’s Whiteknights campus, we are at the centre of the Thames Valley region, close to Heathrow, London and the headquarters of some of the world’s biggest companies. Our researchers have access to all the cutting-edge research facilities that you would expect, including immersive VR design suites, big data visualisation, advanced chemical analysis facilities, and much more.
