Read a selection of our biggest impact success stories and achievements below to find out how we're making a big difference to industry sectors from healthcare and telecommunications to transport and manufacturing.
Improving packing line efficiency
Researchers based at the STFC Hartree Centre are working with Unilever to optimise their packing line operations using the power of data.
Cyber security in connected autonomous vehicles
As part of an Innovate UK funded project, we worked with Chilton Computing, Huduma and Oxfordshire County Council as part of a consortium focusing on cyber security in connected autonomous vehicles.
Getting the picture of emulsion flows
Along with Unilever, we are employing computational modelling to study detailed dynamics of emulsions to optimise innovative manufacturing processes.
Cognitive chemical manufacturing
We worked with AstraZeneca to optimise their chemical manufacturing processes, saving time and costs in large scale product production and manufacturing.
Computational formulation for polymers
We worked with Johnson Matthey, using computational techniques to automate and accelerate the process of identifying properties of novel chemical formulations.
Speeding up data ingestion for property surveying
We helped Chartered Surveyors Roberts Vain Wilshaw to automate the integration of new data into their technology stack, freeing up valuable staff time and generating a competitive advantage over less efficient manual approaches.
Boulder detection from seabed sonar images
We worked with hydrographic survey company Bibby Hydromap, using computational deep learning techniques to automate and accelerate the process of labelling boulders in sonar images.
Designing novel antimicrobial peptides
Ingenza is working with researchers based at the Hartree Centre on molecular simulation techniques with the potential to reduce the time and costs associated with bringing new drug designs to market.
Improving personalised disease diagnostics
By analysing microbiome data, IBM Research scientists based at the STFC Hartree Centre are working to predict whether an individual has an illness, a predisposition to a disease, or how a disease has developed in a non-invasive way.
A cognitive revolution for children’s healthcare
In a ground-breaking collaboration with the Hartree Centre, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital is harnessing the power and potential of IBM Watson cognitive computing technology to personalise healthcare and enhance the patient experience.
Delivering specialist data analytics training
We provided the Data, Risk and Environmental Analytical Methods Centre for Doctoral Training (DREAM CDT) with training in big data analytics to give its PhD students a unique hands-on learning opportunity and enhance thier computational and data skills.
Tailoring computational fluid dynamics software
Mass spectrometer manufacturer Waters is capitalising on a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with the Hartree Centre to add a new dimension to its computing capabilities, enhance product offerings and boost its market share.
Enabling UK businesses to unlock the value of big data
Working with techUK, the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Hartree Centre sponsored a series of Big Data in Action Roadshows to demonstrate the value of big data analytics and encourage adoption of these technologies in UK industry.
Transforming traffic modelling with Atkins
In a pioneering collaboration funded by Highways England and Atkins, the STFC Hartree® Centre’s expertise is ensuring that key simulation software can meet the intense demands of a £15 billion road construction and improvement programme.
Drip-free design meets need for speed
Using supercomputer Blue Wonder, we helped Unilever slash many months and tens of thousands of pounds from the design process, whilst delivering the best consumer experience for new laundry liquid products.
Pharmaceutical product design goes digital
Working with major names in the industry, the Hartree Centre is a partner in the powerful ADDoPT collaboration that aims to secure the UK’s place at the forefront of new pharmaceutical development.
