Acoustics Research Priorities

The 20 Higher Order Acoustics Research Priorities are a result of collaborative work between the 16 UKAN+ Special Interest Groups, UKAN+ investigator team and UKAN+ wider community who were given the opportunity to comment on a draft (V4) document in July 2021. This document and priority list were revised in September 2021. The revision includes a majority of the comments made by UKAN+ members.

The Priorities have been assigned to one or more of four themes: Manufacturing and Transport, Sustainability, AI and Wellbeing. It is proposed that these Priorities should guide applications for explorative (pilot) and knowledge transfer (KT) cross-disciplinary research projects between industry, government, third-sector organisations and academia which UKAN+ will support. These will also guide full-scale grant applications to be developed by our research community in the near future.
