Global uncertainties and security dominate the news and public debate and are widely recognised as key challenges. The University is responding to these challenges by growing its body of expertise in significant areas such as climate change, public health, social policy, environment, design, product development, aviation impacts, weapons detection, functional clothing, and sustainability.
In addition we are working to ensure that organisations can benefit from this expertise in a variety of ways including: research, consultancy, placement projects, training and development, or by accessing our specialist centres and facilities.
