Shaping future healthcare
New mobile and internet technology is being used by an Edinburgh Napier team to revolutionise the way healthcare is delivered across Europe. Meanwhile, other work is using nature as the inspiration for computing solutions.
Sustaining global societies
In Kenya, we’ve helped protect over 100 hectares of tropical mangrove forests by setting up a carbon credit scheme. Thousands of miles away, in Brazil, another scientific scheme is helping conserve mangrove crabs – a national delicacy and key to the country’s coastal ecosystem.
Gearing up our economy
Mountain biking is worth millions to the Scottish economy. Now a national centre near Peebles, with Edinburgh Napier at its heart, will aim to support the burgeoning industry around this exciting growth sport.
How do we build new homes whilst minimising impact on the environment? University construction experts have pioneered tech to reduce heat loss and noise levels, while other researchers are helping make more of our existing housing stock.
Influencing employment policy
For over a decade, the Employment Research Institute has worked with governments in Scotland, Northern Ireland and England to inform labour policies.
Exploring tourism and social change
Can mega events like The World Cup be used to bring about social change? And what do Generation Y want from leisure events? We’re exploring those questions and others.
