A new report published today sets out the long-term vision for how engineering research will help to tackle key challenges.

The publication of Tomorrow’s Engineering Research Challenges (TERC) follows extensive engagement with the UK’s engineering community.

The report was facilitated by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation, the main UK funder of engineering research.

Themes and technological challenges discussed in the report include materials, responsible engineering, achieving net-zero and sustainability, faster digital design, greater access and use of data, understanding complex systems and harnessing disruptive emerging technologies.
