Research impact case studies

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF), published 18 December 2014, the wider societal impact of a university's research was used as one of the assessment criteria for the first time. The REF 2014 looked at how research had been translated into real-life applications with broad benefits to society, the economy, politics and the environment.

Several of our departments performed very well under the impact criteria. Click on each subject  to find out how their research is making an impact.
