The Statistical Physics group is involved in a number of international collaborations, but notably the L4 collaboration in which the Universities of Coventry, Lorraine (France), Leipzig (Germany) and L’viv (Ukraine) collaborate on a variety of topics in Critical Phenomena and Phase Transitions, Socio-Physics and Quantum Physics. The collaborative partners share a number of co-tutelle PhD students, enabling students to benefit from the expertise of several top-ranking institutions.
Phonological study on climate change is done in collaboration with the Woodland Trust, the Technical University of Munich (Germany) and Poznan University of Life Sciences (Poland).
The Machine Learning group has a number of close collaboration across the world, in particular: Jiangnan University and Xi'an Jiaotong University, China; University of Minas Gerais, Brazil; Medical University, Graz, Austria; University of Patras, Greece; Curtin University, Australia and the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
Serious Games research is done in collaboration with a range of Universities and Institutes across Europe. A significant science education project (Simula) extending current gamification techniques results from a collaboration with the Fraunhofer institute of Technology, Germany and Intrasoft in Belgium. A project on patient awareness of Chronic Kidney Disease (Phosphorus Mission) in conjunction with Imperial Healthcare resulted in an educational game accredited by EDTNA (European Dialysis and Transplantation Nurse Association). Another game (Plan-it Commander) for the treatment of ADHD was sponsored by Janssen Pharmaceutica in Belgium and won Best Health Game at the Fun and Serious Games Festival in 2013.
The School has a collaborative split-site PhD programme with the Middle Eastern College in Oman with students in different areas of Computer Science.
