Research with impact

We are aiming to be one of the leading UK modern universities for research and its impact. Research excellence is at the heart of our strategic plan and central to the new StaffordshireUniversity vision and strategy of being the Connected University. Research is the bridge between the three pillars of our strategic plan: Innovative and Applied Learning, Connecting Communities, and Talented People. Our research and knowledge exchange activities give our students an edge, whether it be through impact on the curriculum, opportunities for student mobility, or involvement in novel and innovative projects.

At Staffordshire University research activity is driven by a network of interdisciplinary research centres which support our ambitious plan of doubling our research capacity while at the same time driving up quality. In doing so we promote Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire globally.

One of our more exciting areas of research is Plastic Pollution Research – we can all make a difference in terms of plastic pollution and our site can help you to improve your, and our, environment.
