Research to support the continuous pursuit of excellence
Dr David Gerber
Global Research Leader

At Arup we believe that collaboration is key to our success. The majority of our research projects are delivered in collaboration with external partners from academia, industry, the public sector and NGOs. Our researchers regularly work in partnership with universities, research labs and other businesses to bring together the best talent in the pursuit of technical excellence.

We are keen to continue and encourage this tradition, forging new connections and maintaining existing links with high-quality research establishments, national and international societies, public institutions and NGOs.

Please contact us to discuss a potential research collaboration.

Water Managment

The discrepancy between water supply and demand is rising, and our everyday activities impact the water cycles and ecosystems that surround us. Arup has teamed up with FrankWater to develop a toolkit to help NGOs in the water and sanitation industry. Through our research programme, Arup is using satellite imagery to assess flood risk by identifying land use and impact on run off.
