Breaking research boundaries
Our research focuses on four key areas: Creative industries and technologies, Digital Futures, Health and Wellbeing and Sustainability and climate change resilience. This is research with the power to transform lives and transform the future. This is research done right.
We are asking ourselves the difficult questions and inspiring others with our areas of expertise.
Creative industries and technologies
Creativity powers innovation and progress. We’re creating new futures in everything from film and TV, animation and digital story-telling, games and virtual reality.
Digital technologies will reshape and recode our world. From big data and machine learning to cyber security, digital ethics, deep fakes and beyond.
Health and wellbeing
We’re living longer. But are we living better? We’re tackling the challenges of today and tomorrow from genomics and new diagnostics to advanced health technologies, transforming health and wellbeing futures for all.
Sustainability and climate change resilience
The future of the planet is at stake, and we won’t get a second chance. We’re tackling the big issues of climate change, carbon reduction, sustainability and pollution head-on to protect our world for future generations.
Our 2030 Research Strategy is growing world-leading research with real-world impact, prioritising challenge-based research, driving enterprise and enhancing the student experience.
