The School's strategy for developing research income is underpinned by a fundamental drive for interdisciplinarity in the research that is undertaken. This is supported by the flat research structure of the School and evidenced by the many multidisciplinary grants and increase in income that has been achieved since 2008.
The majority of our research funding comes from the research councils, but we have also undertaken research for businesses and public sector organisations. The following are a sample of organisations that have funded our research since 2008.
