Research centres and institutes

Our centres and institutes bring together our world-leading academics to share expertise.

Research institutes

Our institutes are areas where the University has a global reputation for a particular field (or fields) of work and where the University demonstrates significant disciplinary and cross-disciplinary strength. Institutes are typically cluster collections of other centres and research clusters that draw on the expertise of the academic staff on a pan-University basis and may involve a wide range of external partners. They represent 'flagships' for the projection of the University’s research particularly in the field of impact and knowledge exchange.

Research centres

A research centre may be either interdisciplinary and/or multi-departmental or a single (sub)-disciplinary activity within a department.
