The University of Manchester's research environment encourages innovative, 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.
We're now at the forefront of research into the wonder-material graphene, having discovered its properties through our Nobel Prize-winning professors Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov.
And our research environment spreads far beyond our campus. We maximise our impact through external funding, licensing, supporting enterprise and partnering with other organisations, bringing benefits to individuals, businesses and communities.
