UWS SIGNATURE RESEARCH & INNOVATION
We are proud of our signature research capabilities which are central to developing innovations with global societal impact; changing the lives of communities across the world.
The University’s research spans many areas, and our successes are far reaching.
Our partnerships with business, industry and the public and voluntary sectors, worldwide, are exemplary - our research and innovation flourishes through these strong collaborations. For example, working with Phoenix Instinct we developed a groundbreaking ultralight wheelchair, which led to the company winning a $1 million global competition.
We help our industry partners find solutions, bringing together cutting-edge research expertise, knowledge exchange and an array of bespoke research facilities. This results in research and innovation that has a tangible and remarkably positive impact on society, our planet and the economy.
Our research was recognised at the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) Awards 2020, winning an award for a pioneering artificial intelligence (AI) drone collaboration. This is testament to the commitment, passion and creativity of our staff and students.
Leadership in Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) forms a key part of our success, and we are thriving in large research consortia, tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
Right here, right now, we are making the world a better place.
