Our Research

Engaged Research

We deliver outstanding research that addresses the biggest challenges facing contemporary society. Our researchers are finding ways to improve the quality of life for an ageing population, we are combating the adverse effects of climate change, we are dedicated to fighting inequality and we are champions for the unquestionable value that the arts and humanities add to our culture and society. 

University Research Centres across key disciplines were formed in 2014 to act as the driving force behind the next phase of our ambitious research plans. The Centres focus on areas of excellence and quality as independently confirmed by the results of REF2014.

Ethics and Governance

Our research complies with rigorous ethical standards.

Funding and Awards

We are currently managing £19M of research contracts.


We have several systems to help record,showcase and analyse our research.
