Lloyd's Register Foundation

We are a charitable foundation, helping to protect life and property by supporting engineering-related education, public engagement and the application of research. We do this because………life matters. Set up as a charity in 2012, our history dates back to 1760 through Lloyd's Register, a public benefit organisation in the marine and energy sectors.

You will find more details on this website about our funding and some of the current programmes of research and training benefiting from our activities.

We are funding research by the University of the West of England, Bristol in collaboration with Monash University and University of Arizona, to investigate issues around water security.


As a relatively new charity we have been considering how best to fulfil our objectives. In future, our grant giving will be focused on four themes which are related to the enhancement of the safety of the critical infrastructure upon which society relies. Details about the new funding programmes will be announced in 2014. We will continue to fund the existing recipients under our current programmes for the remainder of their agreements.
