Lloyd's Register Foundation is a charity with a mission to protect life and property and to advance transport and engineering education and research. We became fully operational in 2013 but we draw on a long and distinguished history dating back to 1760 through our trading arm, Lloyd’s Register Group Limited (LR), with its tradition of public benefit.
Our vision is to be known worldwide as a leading supporter of engineering-related research, training and education, that makes a real difference in improving the safety of the critical infrastructure on which modern society relies. In support of this, we promote scientific excellence and act as a catalyst working with others to achieve maximum impact.
Our strategic themes are concerned with supporting excellent scientific research, promoting engineering-related education, encouraging public communication around risk, and facilitating the uptake and application of technology for the wider benefit of society.
