Research that Matters

The University of Birmingham is a founder member of the Russell Group of research intensive universities in the UK and is ranked a top 100 university in the world.

One of the University's strategic goals is to deliver high quality ‘Research that Matters’ - excellent research that has broad and enduring impact, and is transformational well beyond the environment in which it is created. Through our research and its dissemination, we aim to enable transformational change that is of benefit to society, to business, the economy and the environment, in healthcare, culture and the creative industries, education, and policymaking – locally, nationally and globally.

Via our Research Spotlights we are showcasing the University of Birmingham's pioneering breakthroughs, multidisciplinary collaboration and significant global impact. While through our Strategic Global Engagements we collaborate with partners across the world to produce ground-breaking research, deliver innovative teaching, creating opportunities for students and staff to gain international experience.
