Research beacons at The University of Manchester

The University of Manchester’s research beacons are examples of pioneering discoveries, interdisciplinary collaboration and cross-sector partnerships that are tackling some of the biggest questions facing the planet.

Global challenges, Manchester solutions

At The University of Manchester we conduct a wide range of high-quality research that is rivalled by few other universities, as demonstrated by our submission to the Research Excellence Framework 2014. Much of this research combines expertise from across disciplines, making the most of the opportunities that our size and breadth of expertise affords.

These areas of investigation feature a unique concentration of high-quality research activity. They allow us to bring the best minds together to find new ways forward. 

Crucially for a university that places social responsibility at the core of everything we do, our research beacons demonstrate our commitment to making a difference, enabling us to improve the lives of people around the world through our research.
