As an ambitious and innovative university, our research makes a tangible difference to the way we live. Coventry University is already known for delivering research that makes a significant contribution to a number of global challenges.
Our Research Centres focus on a range of real-world issues under five key themes.
The zika virus, carried by a mosquito, has resulted in increased reported incidences of microcephaly (abnormally small heads) in newborn babies in Brazil. In the short term, spraying with insecticide can reduce mosquito populations, but this is not a long term solution. It is proposed that there is a relationship between microcephaly, and inadequate provision of potable supplies, drainage and sanitation.
This project will collect data focused on a case study area in the NE of the country (Ceará) where there have been many cases of microcephaly.
Novel tool condition monitoring approach provided by models developed from empirical sensor fusion data and, numerical methods: Emphasis on less prototypes and more on simulation models generating optimised products.
Social Enterprises represent a growing sector of the private sector contributing significantly to employment and the provision of services in the communities that they serve. However, social enterprises remain relatively nascent in terms of the published literature. We are seeking candidates to explore the nature and experience of social enterprises in a specific country context or even from a comparative perspective.
The research will seek to examine how consumers understand sustainable consumption, as well as exploring whether calculating a holistic measure of environmental impact (e.g., carbon foot printing) can assist in modifying behaviour, intentions and attitudes.
