Our research projects

Our research is supported by a range of national and international funders. We host large research programmes, early and mid-career research fellows, as well as a range of individual and team projects on exciting new agendas in research, pedagogy and scholarship.

We also support collaborative research through consultancy, knowledge transfer partnerships and projects aiming to turn research into meaningful change for the benefit of people across the globe.
