At Kent, we are committed to supporting outstanding research and innovation across the arts and humanities, sciences and social sciences.
"Our REF results demonstrate that Kent continues to produce research that informs and underpins our teaching at all levels and makes a very clear and significant difference to lives and livelihoods regionally, nationally and internationally."
Professor Shane Weller
Our research and innovation activities are delivering significant cultural, social and economic benefits to communities regionally, nationally and internationally. Our students also benefit from a research-informed education and a wide range of opportunities to get involved in research.
We take a collaborative, global, impactful, innovative and interdisciplinary approach to research and innovation. This is reflected in our Signature Research Themes, our Institutes, our Research Centres, our Academic Divisions, our Graduate and Researcher College, and our research strengths in the following areas:
Research and Innovation Services are a dynamic department at the heart of University of Kent activity and the central point for our research and knowledge exchange activities.
They assist and facilitate academic and industrial research & innovation collaborations, provide support on research and innovation funding opportunities, prepare funding bids and negotiate research and innovation contracts. They also increase the impact of research through collaboration, knowledge exchange activities and commercialisation of Intellectual Property.
