It is highly acknowledged for its research and teaching in a number of disciplines, two of its professors have been awarded Nobel prizes (for Economics and Medicine). Two groups will be involved in the project: Human Factors and Centre for Concurrent Enterprise.

The team has ready access to expertise across all aspects of ergonomics, psychology, engineering, computing and business for industry relevant projects. The HFRG is reputed to be a world leading group and have been partners in a number of recent or current European grants, as project, cluster or workpackage managers.

Over the years, members of the centre have developed an international reputation in the areas of concurrent engineering, product design management, engineering management, innovation, knowledge management, supply chain management, virtual enterprising and related disciplines.
