Research fellowships to advance medical treatments and bring new science to market
Date:2/6/2013

s awarded a 5-year fellowship worth 1. 2 million to Dr Nathan Crilly, from the University of Cambridge, to develop design guidance for scientists, technologists and engineers working with emerging technologies.

Dr Crilly said: "The projected markets for emerging technologies are enormous, and the UK is in a strong position to lead technology development and commercial exploitation. However, realising these opportunities depends on the capacity to translate scientific advances and technological developments into product ideas that are suitable for manufacture, distribution and use. Developing flexibly applicable design guidance is key to enhancing that capacity."

The project will examine a variety of scientific developments, ranging from nanomaterials constructed at the atomic level through to smart infrastructures enabled by the internet and other complex systems. Factors that contribute to the successful development and operation of such technical systems will be identified, structured and communicated.

Dr Crilly said: "Developing actionable design guidance is challenging because there is uncertainty over which of the many rapidly emerging technologies will be commercialised, and which different types of system these technologies will be composed of."

"The research will combine industrial case studies with an analysis of how different types of system function. The common factors that contribute to the performance, efficiency and robustness of these systems will be communicated to practitioners through collaboration with specialists in digital media."

Dr Crilly is a Lecturer in Engineering Design at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow in Engineering at Clare College, Cambridge. He has a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and a PhD in Design Research.
