Our impact helps to define who we are and what we are good at.
Our research has led to the creation of biomedical devices that have saved thousands of lives. It’s helped Government’s to reduce carbon emissions. It has changed the way that every young person is educated. It has protected human rights, addressed ageing, dementia and loneliness, and helped to make links between the arts, culture, wellbeing and the economy.
Underpinning all of this is a desire to make a difference, a willingness to help our researchers to reach out and to connect with the wider world.
Take a look at examples of the impact of our research drawn from the case studies we submitted to the Research Excellence Framework.
