New automotive research facility

Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS)

Oculus are delighted to have been appointed as Approved Inspector for the Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems, being built by the University of Bath at the Bristol and Bath Science Park in South Gloucestershire.   As a new research facility it will be a global centre of excellence, delivering transformational research and innovation into advanced propulsion systems. 

IAAPS will focus on current automotive issues, such as the need for cleaner and environmentally smarter cars, and will be supported by the University of Bath’s engineering expertise. 

The project has been awarded £28.9 million by the Higher Education Funding Council for England’s UK Research Partnership Investment Fund, as well as £10 million through the Local Growth Fund of the West of England Combined Authority and Local Enterprise Partnership.  It also benefits from the support of many global companies as well as more local businesses. 

Oculus are assisting the team in the design review process with current priorities focusing on fire safety and universal access.
