Our standout projects range from to biochemistry to industrial design, but, like much of the best research, they have a few things in common.
First, they are collaborative and cross-disciplinary. They bring together skills and ideas from different working groups, faculties, research areas and institutions.
Second, they have the potential to transform lives. As a leading applied university, we're investing in research that addresses real-world social, economic and health challenges. Each of these projects represents a significant advance in one of the three platforms that underpin our research strategy – and in some cases, more than one.
All seven projects are profiled in more detail in our Research in Action section, including information about the researchers involved, and links to related papers and articles.
In the spirit of Science Week, we also encourage you to explore the partner links on each page. They're a gateway to more of the groundbreaking work taking place across the higher education sector and beyond. We're proud to be part of that bigger picture.
