At City, we combine academic excellence with a keen focus on business and the professions to produce internationally recognised research that makes a difference across all sectors of society.
Making a difference
Our culture is about reaching outwards, encouraging academics to think about real life impact of their work.
They do this through active engagement with policy makers and those who benefit directly from research to find ways in which knowledge can be modified, embedded in services and otherwise made useful.
Our research is shaping policy and practice in areas as diverse as mental health and wellbeing, finance and banking, politics, public policy and regulation, engineering and the environment.
Our Research and Enterprise Office supports academics at all stages of their work, including:
- Facilitating mutually beneficial relationships between researchers and external partners
- Handling institutional intellectual property issues to maximise use of research
- Helping researchers to engage effectively with audiences throughout the cycle of their research.
