Industrial Partners & Supporting Institutions

In order to help addressing our research questions and also ensure that CANES students understand the industrial relevance of non-equilibrium phenomena, industrial links have been enstablished with three main sectors where the CANES research themes can bring tangible benefits. These sectors are:

(a) industrial sectors relying on non-equilibrium processes, e.g. in materials synthesis, microelectronics or energy conversion technologies;

(b) the biomedical sector, where non-equilibrium effects are present at the microbiological level (protein interaction, signalling and transcription networks), at the patient level (prediction of disease progression, feeding into personalized medicine) and the population level (epidemic processes); and

(c) the financial and re-insurance sectors, where the stability and occurrence of rare events in non-equilibrium systems like financial networks or natural hazard settings are key concerns.

In these areas we have engaged the following research users as partners:


AWE (ab intio material modelling calculations incorporating strong electron correlation)


Citibank (non-equilibrium market models)


The Francis Crick Institute(systems and computational biology approaches to developmental biology and cancer research)


Deutsche Bank (operational risks in financial networks)


Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftbank (systemic and operational risks in financial networks)


Financial Network Analytics (modelling and data analysis of financial networks)


Fios Genomics (data analysis for drug discovery and development)


Forwardlane (artificial intelligence applied to financial advice)


Lucid (data technology)


Microsoft Research Cambridge (computational biological modelling, simulation, and analysis)


National Physical Laboratory (self-assembly of peptides/proteins)


ONRG (chemomechanical processes occurring inside metal components subject to extreme operative conditions)


Seldon (enterprise machine learning)


The Simons Foundation (quantum excitations in strongly correlated materials)


Techstars (startup acceleration programme)


Unilever (non-equilibrium soft matter)
