Textile Research Fellowships


    THE British Research Association for the Woollen and Worsted Industries represents the culmination of a movement which was started at the University of Leeds during the early days of the war. Two objectives were then in view, research specially applied to the elucidation of problems presented by the textile industries, and a deeper and more extensive education with the object of promoting the introduction of the sciences and scientific method into industry whenever and wherever possible. It was perhaps natural that the first of these objectives should dominate when, in what it conceived to be the larger interest of the community, the University handed over its missionary work to the newly constituted Research Association, which included representatives from the whole of the woollen and worsted industries of Great Britain and Ireland.
