Impact of research

The University of Hertfordshire has long been recognised for original, high-quality research, with applied research being a particular strength. Today, our research community is committed to finding inspiring and sustainable solutions to fundamental social, economic and environmental problems.

Climate change, energy, engineering, healthcare, science and technology are just some areas where we are breaking new ground for the benefit of people in the UK and across the globe. In moving forward this ambitious agenda we engage with other academic institutions, business and industry, public and third sector organisations. Our research culture, which is defined by a strong spirit of enquiry, innovation and enterprise, also feeds into teaching and learning to enrich our students’ experience.
