New research website launched

The new research section of the BU website is now live, following the conclusion of a project between Marketing & Communications (M&C) and Research Development & Support (RDS) to redevelop and migrate the previous research website.

The aim of the project was to increase the profile of our research activities and strengths, leading to better outcomes around our research from website visitors, which could include:

  • Additional research funding,
  • Collaboration and partnership,
  • Expanding international reputation,
  • Consultancy,
  • Expanding publishing and media coverage.

The new pages prominently profile our research projects, research centres and institutes, as well as ways for members of the public to get involved in or find out more about our research events.  These pages will be added to over time, as new research projects and areas of impact emerge.

The old research microsite will be retired over the next couple of weeks, with page redirects in place to enable people to find the new content.
