Mission and Context

Warwick has a strong and clear research strategy that calls on us to address the world’s most pressing challenges, but also to lead by creating new research ideas.

Warwick is also determined to be a leading global university, building connections with individuals and institutions who see the world as a place that can be transformed by learning and working together.


Warwick’s IAS is dedicated to advancing new research ideas, characterised by:

  • Interdisciplinarity - creating synergies between traditional research disciplines
  • Innovation - facilitating activities that realise the full value of our ideas
  • Internationalisation - connecting Warwick researchers with partners around the world
