Research showcase

We have entered a new and exciting era for research at the University of Derby. Research is a fundamental part of our identity as an academic institution and the work we do has a real impact.

Aiming high

Our exciting range of research projects has helped us in pursuit of our overall aim:

In the last decade, we have increased our annual research income by 172% and our latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) results were our best ever, with three-quarters of our output judged to be at least ‘internationally significant’.
