Research centres and groups

As well as broad interdisciplinary research themes, we also support research centres and groups that have a specific focus. This enables us to nurture and develop collaborative academic clusters with contributions from external colleagues. We support growth through networking, links with other national and regional networks, tailored events, dissemination and a range of other support functions. Further information is below.
