Official Launch Video: three new advanced engineering research centres open in Sheffield

The three new research centres opening at The University of Sheffield - the Laboratory for Verification and Validation (LVV), the Royce Translational Centre (RTC) and the Integrated Civil and Infrastructure Research Centre (ICAIR) - are located within the heart of the Sheffield City Region’s Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District and are a key element of the emerging Global Innovation Corridor that stretches across the Sheffield City Region.

Working with companies to help develop new technologies, the centres will use the transformational power of research to cut costs and lead times which will revolutionise industrial processes. The £47 million pound development has been part-funded by European Regional Development Fund, UK Research and Innovation and the University of Sheffield.
