At Warwick we undertake truly amazing research. Alongside our outstanding educational offering, the excellence and originality of our research, and dedication of our researchers, is what defines our community. Our research improves lives locally, nationally and internationally. Our partnerships and collaborations deliver impact and create prosperity. Research is the beating heart of the University…a fundamental part of our mission, a major part of what makes us special.

As members of the Warwick community, we are proud of what we achieve together through our research and innovation. Collectively, our research is benefiting the societies we serve. Making them safer, healthier and more inclusive places to live, work and learn.

Our research is made possible by the brilliance of our PhD students, Researchers, Technicians and Academics…the foundation of our research community.

A hugely important contribution by those colleagues in our Professional and Support Services is sometimes less visible, but their commitment, and resourcefulness, underpins and enables all that we do.
