About Research At Coventry

As an ambitious and innovative university, our research makes tangible difference to the way we live. Coventry University is already known for delivering research that makes a significant contribution to a number of global challenges. Our research centres focus on a range of real world issues including sustainability, disease prevention and innovative engineering. Our new strategy will build on these successes, strengthen our position as an innovative university and will enable us to apply fresh and original approaches to key research challenges.

In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, almost two-thirds of our submitted research was rated as international, internationally excellent, or world-leading standard. We are continuing to build on this success in collaboration with businesses, external funders, students and the wider community. We have entered a range of research to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, view our set of extremely positive REF results and further information about our submission.

As part of our work during REF2014, our Grand Challenge Initiatives focused our research efforts on seven key global issues which explored the following; Sustainable Agriculture, an Aging Society, Low Carbon Vehicles, Integrated Transport and Logistics, Low Impact Building, Digital Media and Human Security.
