Modernising the Lloyd's Register archives
A treasure trove of data on ships, deep in an archive facility in Woolwich, London, is now freely available to all following a major digitisation project funded by Lloyd’s Register Foundation.
Towards data centric engineering
Since our 2014 ‘Foresight Review’ was published, Lloyd’s Register Foundation has been a leading voice in the transformation that ‘big data’ is bringing to the world of engineering.
Securing our future through resilient infrastructure
Funded by the Foundation, The Resilience Shift brings policy-makers, resilience practitioners and thought leaders together with the engineering and technical communities to put resilience engineering at the forefront.
Stopping shipping accidents before they happen
We’re making shipping safer through our grant to HiLo, which uses predictive risk modelling to identify potentially high-impact events and stop disasters in their tracks.
Clear crisis communication in a world of fake news
As the world wrestles with the unprecedented ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our work on the Lloyd’s Register Foundation Institute for the Public Understanding of Risk (IPUR) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) has been in the spotlight.
Helping the RNLI save lives at sea
Every day, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) takes to the seas around the coastline of Britain to rescue people who need their help. Our funding is giving crews and volunteers the life-saving skills they need - and which any one of us might depend on.
Transforming ferry safety in the Philippines
Our grant has enabled a team of Interferry experts to undertake a scoping study in the Philippines, to identify which measures have been most helpful in strengthening safety in its domestic ferry industry.
Pioneering the next wave of aviation innovation
Our grant to Vianair Inc. has helped it create a software platform to help keep aircraft safely seperated, reducing emmissions, noise pollution and delays while improving safety.
Building resilience to major industrial accidents
Our grant to the China Academy of Safety Science and Technology (CASST) in Beijing is helping develop a legal framework, standards and methodology for emergency preparedness and response.
Engineering safer built environments
For the last ten years, we have been helping long-term grant partners TWI Ltd establish a global hub for research into structural integrity, The National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC).
Promoting cyber awareness to maritime boards
We’re working with the Research Institute for Sociotechnical Cyber Security (RISCS) on a long-term project to drive up cyber security standards on the boards of private companies, particularly shipping companies.
Helping develop the new autonomous world, safely
Our partnership with the University of York in the Assuring Autonomy International Programme (AAIP) is helping ensure autonomous technologies help us rather than harm us.
Engineering fire safety in Africa
A Lloyd’s Register Foundation grant is supporting the Fire Engineering Education for Africa (FEEFA) programme at Stellenbosch University, which is now taking its first generation of masters (MEng) and PhD students through training.
Providing safe water supplies in East Africa
If a key COVID-19 measure is hand hygiene, what about the three-fifths of the world which doesn’t have safe access to clean water? The International Water Security Network (IWSN) is providing practical help to African communities.
Research helps tackle the stress and loneliness of life at sea
We’re working with Cardiff University’s Seafarers International Research Centre (SIRC) to persuade shipping firms to improve conditions for their employees - who may be at sea for up to a year without a break.
Developing safety-critical skills in South-East Asia
By providing scholarships to the South East Asia Skills Enhancement Programme (SEASEP), we’re giving a new generation of engineers the skills and training they need to further their careers and make their industries safer.
Supporting a global network of maritime law experts
By supporting the International Maritime Legal Institute (IMLI), we’re helping to develop a formidable network of maritime legal specialists across the world, sharing the same principles and working towards the same goals.
Blockchain - transforming safety at sea
A grant from Lloyd’s Register Foundation to study the use of blockchain in shipping could lead to cleaner fuels, better conditions for seafarers and fewer fires at sea through safer transport of hazardous materials.
Saving lives of the world’s poorest fishermen
Fishermen in poor countries face unacceptably high risks of death or life-changing injuries. In Bangladesh, every year over 1,350 fishermen die at sea, in boats without the most basic safety equipment – or even clean drinking water.
Safe seaweed to feed the planet
Forested with wind turbines and crowded with congested shipping lanes, can the North Sea also be a sustainable source of seaweed to feed the planet, and can this happen safely?
Why does the maritime past matter?
Our Heritage & Education Centre is the custodian of Lloyd’s Register’s unique heritage collection, containing more than 250 years of ship plans, survey reports, letter books, photograph collections and so much more.
Is shipping ready for radical transparency?
Blockchain has the potential to revolutionise many different sectors so we are supporting Maritime Blockchain Labs in exploring how these technologies can transform the assurance and safety of shipping’s critical infrastructure.
What does the world know about safety?
Our Foresight Review on global safety evidence explores the current data we have, how those data sets are used and what the trends and challenges are for the future evidence base for safety.
Can we predict how accidents really happen?
Our ten-year relationship with the Pusan National Research Centre has grown its capability and capacity for pioneering marine and offshore research.
