Project overview

VisionOur vision is to improve the impact, effectiveness and relevance of blast injury and protection research to address the global challenges of explosive violence, landmines and explosive remnants of war. 
AimsOur research aims to build a novel evidence-base surrounding blast injury and protection research and develop global networks to facilitate effective trans-disciplinary collaborations. To achieve this, we are:Mapping Global Research Investment into Blast Injury ResearchUndertaking Scientific Reviews of Blast Injury ResearchOrganising International Workshops & Forums
Taking an applied multidisciplinary approach, we are establishing a unique evidence-base that can be utilised to inform future research methodologies and investment to improve protection and health outcomes. In addition to research, the IBRN facilitates ongoing research cooperation between the fields of engineering and medicine and promotes wider collaboration between academia, industry, clinicians, defence and humanitarian organisations.
