IMI's secondment research projects span multiple disciplines but have in common that they involve an element of mathematics, statistics or data science. Our secondees often work collaboratively with the Institute's Commercial Research Associates.

'I am seeking to develop a mathematical model that can accurately determine the environmental impacts of products and services throughout their lifetime; both instantaneously and cumulatively, by using a life cycle assessment. I wouldn’t be able to do this work without IMI's help.'
