University of Birmingham
The University of Birmingham is committed to research that is world-leading in terms of its originality and distinctiveness, significance and rigour. The university’s vision is to inspire today’s brightest researchers to make a major impact on global society, and to become the leaders of tomorrow in whatever field they pursue.
The university supports knowledge transfer as a broad spectrum of activity – including dissemination to peers, engagement of the public, support to government and industry, and commercialisation of our intellectual property. It aims to build on individual excellence and to capitalise on our distinctive multi- and inter-disciplinary research strengths to address key national and global challenges; recognising that the complexity of these requires the productive bringing together of different perspectives and skills.
