Thatcham Research

  • Thatcham, Thatcham, UK

Thatcham Research was established by the motor insurance industry in 1969, with the specific aim of containing or reducing the cost of motor insurance claims while maintaining safety standards.

We remain the UK’s only ‘not for profit’ insurer funded research centre, and hold a unique position thanks to our involvement and engagement with vehicle manufacturers, regulators, law enforcement organisations, automotive bodies and insurers to provide a holistic view of the benefits or shortcomings of vehicle technologies. Our research is at the forefront of vehicle safety, security and repair.
