Research is at the heart of the University of Central Lancashire’s mission and we promote a research culture based on quality and excellence. Our community of researchers is well respected by their academic peers and tackle real-world issues and problems.
Our research delivers highly cited academic outputs, as well as providing a broad range of benefits and impact to the industries, organisations and community groups with whom we work around the world. Almost 50% of the research which the University submitted to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 was assessed as 4* (world-leading) or 3* (internationally excellent), with each of the 16 research areas involved demonstrating both 4* and 3* quality.
We are dedicated to cultivating a supportive and stimulating research environment that will generate the innovation required to tackle today’s global challenges.
