Research and knowledge exchange
Delivering internationally high quality research of lasting academic value and with impact that benefits and enriches society.
Our research will be internationally recognised for its quality, significance and impact, it will deliver significant growth in activity, and our Sussex distinctiveness will be recognised in our interdisciplinary approach.
We will do this by:
Increasing the number of research-leading staff, developing a competitive, sustainable critical mass in research in targeted areas.
By 2018, at least 50% of our units of assessment placed in the top 15, and an overall place in the top 20 in the UK’s national assessment of research quality.
Increasing research income to £54 million.
Increasing the number of research students.
Creating three new large interdisciplinary research centres.
