Research Environment

UEL's research environment enables world-class critical and applied research. 

    Our Research Environment

    Our research environment helps our academics produce world-class work.  We aim for high-quality research that’s impactful, intellectually stimulating, socially relevant and for the public good.

    Our ambitious research strategy and state-of-the-art facilities have powered UEL's strong performance as a research leader among modern universities. Our work is designed to make a difference – not only through the creation of knowledge but also through a continuing programme of critical and applied research. 

    Our Research Development and Support (ReDs) team support staff in all aspects of funding applications and research management.  We have invested in staff development and training and in sabbatical leave, and we are committed to supporting high standards of governance and ethics and support.

    Our Research Strategy

    We aim to support a sustainable, vital and ethical research environment at UEL. We also intend to establish an international research reputation for the university. 

    As part of these goals, we’ll continue to produce applied and critical research in all our schools. We’ll also be creating academic and business partnerships with leading institutions, organisations and companies.

    We will focus on research that could enhance our students’ employability and also maximise the impacts and commercialisation of our research programmes.

    We’ll continue to grow our mentoring scheme. We aim to develop and support our staff from PhD student to professor.
