Research environment and culture

The University of Manchester's research environment encourages innovation and excellence, including cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Research is at the heart of our heritage, our present and our vision for the future. Our discoveries have shaped the world today, from the development of the first stored-program computer to the establishment of modern economic theory.

With our success in attracting external research funding , state-of-the-art facilities and commitment to the highest standards of research integrity and open research practices, we foster collaborative and inclusive team working, supporting our researchers and technicians to reach their full potential and produce disciplinary and interdisciplinary research excellence.

And our research environment extends beyond our campus, through collaborative research partnerships, our support for enterprises and commercialisation and other research impact activities, bringing benefits to individuals, businesses and communities.
