Research areas

A growing research portfolio across a range of subject areas and increased investment give research at Derby a bright future.

Our research has a strong foundation, with 74% of our research submitted to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) considered internationally significant.

To build on this, we are investing in a new generation of research centres and institutes that will enable us to address the challenges facing industry, business, the public sector and wider society.

Research informs our teaching, encourages enterprise and supports businesses, local authorities and other bodies.
