The Durham Institute of Research, Development, and Invention (DIRDI) latest newsletter – January 2023.

We would like to thank the Vice Chancellor and Durham University Senate for the formation of DIRDI. In partnership with Durham University, DIRDI aims to encourage “Newtonian Discovery” of the fundamental physical laws of the universe, for the benefit of humankind. Alongside this, DIRDI supports “Edisonian Commercialisation” through applied research into acoustics, electromagnetism, and information engineering. We eagerly support and encourage any invention related to Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, the Biosciences, Computer Science, and Mathematics. We hope to identify and support “England’s next Newton” and create a 20-year academic environment in which the UK’s “intellectual gold dust” can become British Nobel Prize Winners of Science.

Based in Country Durham and co-located with the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation (CfAI), DIRDI also strives to become a “gateway into academic research” for normal inventive people across the Northeast of England, so that they may bring their ideas to us, turn them into inventions, and inspire a new way of developing national prosperity by matching academic research excellence to the will to invent.

We are looking for passionate Durham Academic staff to join our network and to help us achieve these goals.

If you would like to become a member, a fellow, or enquire further about DIRDI please email [email protected] and we will be delighted to send more information and details.
