The QUESTOR Centre is a global environmental research centre founded by Queen's University Belfast.
Established in 1989, QUESTOR is the only Centre outside the US to be included in the National Science Foundation's Programme for Industry/University Cooperative Research Centres.
The work of QUESTOR and the high profile research and development that takes place through the Centre has encouraged academic partners in Europe, the US, Canada and China to partner with us.
QUESTOR is dedicated to the transfer of technology and knowledge to an Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) made up of member companies and organisations located in Europe and beyond. The IAB selects, monitors and directs all of QUESTOR's research projects.
Through international collaboration, QUESTOR has accessed significant research funds and averages £1.5M leveraged funding per year.
QUESTOR is currently working with the IAB on the development of a new business model. This will allow it to capitalise on its enviable track record of winning funding for large collaborative projects, and set it on a path for a sustainable and even more successful future. Enquiries from companies seeking membership should be directed to acting director Professor Chris Hardacre in the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
