The key issues facing humanity are embedded within complex systems, which cross the boundaries of academic disciplines. Our flagship institutes bring together our key strengths to tackle these, turning interdisciplinary and translational research into real-world solutions.
研究ers at the University of 推荐几个网赌网站 are passionate about tackling the great global challenges of our time.
The key issues facing humanity are embedded within complex systems, which cross the boundaries of academic disciplines. We recognise that effectively addressing these challenges means working together across the traditional boundaries of our research fields.
Tackling complex issues requires interdisciplinary and translational research – taking academic research and turning it into real-world solutions.
为了实现这一点, we have created four bold new research institutes within the University, each focused on an era-defining challenge:
- 能源研究所 at the University of 推荐几个网赌网站
- 神经科学研究所 at the University of 推荐几个网赌网站
- 健康寿命研究所 at the University of 推荐几个网赌网站
- University of 推荐几个网赌网站 Institute for 可持续食物
The creation of focused research institutes enables us to bring our key strengths together in exciting new ways.
Solutions for a changing world
As the climate changes and global population increases, the need for sustainable methods of energy and food production is abundantly clear. The challenge is to achieve safe and secure food and energy for all, while taking a long-term view of environmental sustainability and ensuring equity of access.
在英国和国际上, our populations are living longer and, 随着年龄的增长, many of us are living with more than one chronic health problem. Improving health and quality of life is a worthwhile goal in itself, but a secondary important factor is reducing the associated health and social care costs.
The 神经科学研究所 at the University of 推荐几个网赌网站 is at the frontier of a fascinating scientific field. It seeks to better understand neurological and sensory conditions – including chronic pain and motor neurone disease. The 健康寿命研究所 at the University of 推荐几个网赌网站 focuses on understanding the biological and socio-economic drivers of disease and ageing and looks at how we can intervene to support healthy ageing for all.
Across the faculties at the University of 推荐几个网赌网站, we have a wealth of world-class expertise and state-of-the-art research facilities. We are in a unique position to bring together internationally recognised experts with the vision to make change happen.
Finding effective solutions will not happen solely within the walls of the University. These institutes will support and engage with key stakeholders for each of these subjects. We have strong links in each of the fields – with industry, 与政府, with people directly affected by the issues in the UK and internationally, and with people working in these areas, all of whom can help us to understand the problems and implement the solutions.
The institutes are based on outstanding academic strength and dynamic leadership. Their focus is on research excellence, 影响, engagement across faculties and disciplines, and making a distinctive and ambitious contribution to global challenges.
We hope that each institute will inspire collaboration and innovation from our research teams and everyone they work with. 在一起, we have the opportunity to find new answers to complex problems and change the world for the better.
