Fluids Dynamics lies at the heart of many societal and industrial challenges with practical application in the engineering and physical sciences and further into geophysical, astrophysical, environmental and biomedical regimes. The Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics is a cross-disciplinary research institute that brings together expertise in a collaborative framework in order to maximise the effectiveness and impact of fluids research.

Find out more about our goals and how we plan to achieve them, and how to work with us.

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics

The Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics (LIFD) has strong links to industry and early career researcher training (see the EPSRC CDT in Fluid Dynamics at www.fluid-dynamics.leeds.ac.uk).

Our goal is to promote and support fundamental and multidisciplinary research, and to encourage collaboration and innovation to tackle Fluid Dynamics problems.
