  • AI software could help construction industry achieve net zero target

    30/11/2020 Computer scientists at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) are developing software that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to help construction companies reduce the amount of embodied carbon in their building and infrastructure projects. The £800,000 project is funded by Innovate UK, the UK's innovation agency that works with organisations to drive the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy.
  • Apprenticeship Minister to launch West of England Institute of Technology

    08/10/2020 The West of England Institute of Technology (WEIoT), which is to deliver higher-level technical education for the digital, engineering and health sectors, is to be opened virtually on 8 October by Gillian Keegan, Minister for Apprenticeships and Skill. The WEIoT's consortium includes the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) and other education providers and key employers across the West of England.
  • Student's DNA device could improve ways of collecting data for endangered species

    09/09/2020 A novel device that extracts DNA from the air to determine what animal lives in a habitat is being developed by a UWE Bristol master's student. Beckie Green is building a prototype of the handheld device, whose design has made it to the final of the Con X Tech Prize, an international competition that calls for innovative ways to solve conservation challenges.
  • Scientists develop machine that transforms dirty water into drinkable supply


    Testing has begun at UWE Bristol on a portable purification system that could bring clean drinking water to areas of the world without reliable access to a safe supply.

  • Academics play role in public trial of driverless pods at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park


    Driverless pods transported members of the public around London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with visitors able to test out an innovative mobility service. The trial was part of a research project involving UWE Bristol robotics and transport experts that will pave the way for the use of connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) transport services at public transport hubs and around private estates, including tourist and shopping centres, hospitals, business parks and airports.

  • World-first 'smart' fungal building to be created in £2.5m living architecture project


    A revolutionary new type of intelligent building made with green construction materials and capable of adaptively reacting to changes in light, temperature and air pollutants is being developed by UWE Bristol academics in collaboration with partners from Denmark (Centre for Information Technology and Architecture), Italy (MOGU) and the Netherlands (Utrecht University).

  • £7.7m investment for University print research centre


    The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol)'s Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) is to receive a £7.7m grant from Research England's Expanding Excellence fund. This prestigious grant is awarded in recognition of the Centre's internationally acclaimed practical research.

  • New Fintech Master's to prepare students for sector's challenges


    The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) is to launch a Fintech Master's degree in September. The course is set to prepare students for the regulatory and ethical challenges likely to arise around new disruptive technologies, and will give them the chance to gain in-depth knowledge on subjects including cryptocurrencies, Blockchain technology, and financial crime.

  • Gestural musical gloves now available on pre-order


    Gestural musical gloves, technology originally developed at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) by Dr Tom Mitchell, are now available for pre-order through a company called MI.MU. The gloves use motion capture and AI to enable wearers to create music with their movements.

  • 3D-printed brains reveal Alzheimer's secrets


    The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol)'s Health Tech Hub has printed three 3D brain models that show the effects of dementia on the organ. Printed for Bristol based dementia charity BRACE, the models each have a section missing, which offers views of the inside of the organ and how the disease has depleted its density.

  • Smart brick technology stars in installation at renowned London art gallery
