Achieving research excellence

Our rapidly growing research portfolio incorporates many projects with industry and academia through partner centres.

The Centre for Sustainable Road Freight is a collaboration between Heriot-Watt, Cambridge University and the University of Westminster, with a strong cohort of industrial partners covering technology, operations and policy. We also work closely with the Centre for Sustainable Cooling at the University of Birmingham, with whom we are establishing international Centres of Excellence in Sustainable Cooling and Cold-chain.
