Who we help

By working in partnership and developing relationships with universities, schools and other charities, we provide support for a wide range of people and organisations. 

The Flood Risk Management Community

We promote the latest best practice in design and maintenance of engineered structures in rivers and at the coast to reduce the risks of flooding using our demonstration physical models.


We offer opportunities for individuals, especially at an early career stage, to enhance their skills and experience by working on research-based projects with us.

Post-graduate students

We provide scholarships and bursaries to postgraduate students on university courses (MSc or PhD).

We also help MSc students completing their dissertation projects by providing placements, technical expertise, facilitating access to software resources and case study data and supporting the dissemination and publication of their research.


We work with schools to develop teaching resources for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects and encourage students to participate in STEM subjects and consider the interesting and exciting career opportunities that are available in the water and environmental risk management sector.

Working with you

If you think that the work of the JBA Trust could be helpful to you, for example by using some of your data in a case study, joining you as a partner in a research project proposal, or working together to make a greater impact by coordinating our activities, then we would be happy to hear from you.

Please get in touch.
