Research Impact

Devonshire Building

We aim to be a globally significant research University that performs high quality research across a wide range of disciplines and locations.

We conduct our research activities with a commitment to excellence and a concern for the needs of both local society and global issues.

The combination of being globally ambitious and regionally rooted underpins Newcastle University's vision.

We strive for world-class academic excellence – but excellence with impact - so that our high-quality academic work is responsive to large-scale societal needs and demands.

This is best achieved if knowledge creation is matched by innovation in the translation of knowledge into economic, social or cultural advancements. It is this ethos of excellence with impact that underpins our research and innovation portfolio and deeply informs our strategy.

We take a collaborative approach to research by:

  • engaging with users of our research
  • seeking input from business and society

We believe that engaged research is far more likely to have meaningful outcomes and identifiable impacts.
