World leading research and application; solving global issues

Making the world a better place by solving significant challenges faced by society and the natural world

This section of the website looks at the incredible work being done by both Universities in the city.

It's a huge asset to the city to have such institutes and facilities available to the students, but also testament to the commitment from both Universities to help define Sheffield as a place that in many instances there is public, private, and sometimes multi-sector collaboration, thereby putting Sheffield on the map beyond academic studies. Two perfect examples of this are the Sheffield Hallam University Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre and the University of Sheffield's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, both of which you can read about and more below.

It should also be said that much of this research is practical and applied. This is not stuff that goes in a library - it's out there in the world, being developed and refined, to help shape our future.
