The University of Brighton organises its research and enterprise through dedicated themes, centres and groups, working in interdisciplinary ways to develop research, ensure its impact and promote its potential.
The Brighton Futures are our five cross-cutting themes – Connected, Creative, Healthy, Radical and Responsible; they offer an infrastructure and associated investment to promote cross-university research and external partnerships to create impact.
They overarch our 15 Centres of Research and Enterprise Excellence (COREs) that address focused research agendas and contemporary societal challenges, and our Research and Enterprise Groups (REGs) that are the incubators for research excellence and build connections and capacity in both emerging and established areas of interest.
This research environment provides a critical mass of expertise around a series of core subject areas. It also offers a first touch-point and nurturing network for new appointees, early career researchers (ECRs) and postgraduate researchers (PGRs). It is with this robust and supportive infrastructure that we move confidently into our next phase of development, focusing on the priorities of growing further our own talent, attracting more international expertise and expanding significantly our PGR community.
We invite individuals, enterprises and the wider community to engage with our researchers and the services we provide through the links below.
