Delivering research with impact
Research can bring many benefits. New theories, discoveries, concepts, ideas and thoughts. But research on its own can only do so much for us. The real benefits are derived from research when it delivers impact - when the findings have a demonstrable contribution to create real change in the world.
At Loughborough, we are focused on delivering meaningful impact.
