Connecting science, safety and society

The Lloyd’s Register Foundation is a charity that helps to protect life and property and support education, engineering-related research and public engagement. 

Our vision is to be known worldwide as a leading supporter of research, training and education – relevant to the field of engineering – which makes a real difference in improving the safety of the critical infrastructure that is vital to modern society. We do this because life matters

A unique feature of the Foundation is that we are able to focus on the long term because of our governance structure and the assets we own. In many cases we work with our grants community to build long term relationships, working together on the challenges facing modern society. This means our funding can go into tackling root problems rather than just alleviating the symptoms. It also means that our grants can be significant, both in terms of their value and duration. 

As technology continues to develop and the population continues to expand, the Foundation will continue to grow its capabilities and ability to help make society a safer place for all.
