Research plays a major role in supporting teaching and learning across the University

University of Derby Research is distinctive and we are proud of our researchers.  Our research is often applied to support the sectors that drive national economic growth, to improve the lives of people locally, nationally and internationally and to support effective policy making and governance.  We often work with collaborators from partner institutions and with industry.  We publish our research so that everyone can share our knowledge.  Our researchers support the creation of further knowledge through their work with our postgraduate research student community.  And we use our research to inspire, inform and generate impact for our students. 

These pages provide an introduction to our research and our researchers.  Please get in touch we’d love to connect with you.
