ERPem, a consortium involving the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University and Edinburgh Napier University, is organised into six Joint Research Institutes (JRIs) dedicated to world-class research, innovation and education in engineering and mathematical science.

"The long-term vision of ERPem is to be the prime vehicle for world-leading research in Engineering and Mathematical Sciences carried out at the participating institutions, and one which is recognised worldwide as a centre of excellence in these disciplines." (Taken from the 2010 ERPem Report to the Advisory Group.)
