Our interdisciplinary research is internationally-leading and impactful. It's helping to make lives healthier, safer, more resilient and more just.
Our research communities foster interaction and collaboration. Our Institute of Advanced Study is dedicated to advancing new research ideas, characterised by strong interdisciplinarity, innovation and internationalisation.
Many of our research centres and institutes are interdisciplinary in nature, such as the Institute for Global Sustainable Development, the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies, the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance and many of our other University Research Centres.
Interdisciplinarity also extends into our vibrant undergraduate community. Through our Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning, we support interdisciplinary student research across a wide variety of subjects.
What does it take for life to survive and flourish? How could technology improve healthcare? How can we find and store sustainable energy? How do the decisions we make impact on society?
These are just some of the questions and concerns address by our Global Research Priorities. GRPs respond to complex global challenges that can only be tackled through research excellence.
They unite academics from many different disciplines to address some of humanity’s most urgent questions - enabling us to improve the lives of people around the world.
