Introducing the Research and Innovation Office

Catherine Lee

The Research and Innovation team is responsible for developing and supporting research, innovation and knowledge exchange across the University and with external partners and stakeholders.

Research, innovation and knowledge exchange at Solent is organised around four thematic, multidisciplinary areas that are intended to facilitate excellence and collaboration both within Solent and with partner organisations, as well as to address issues of local, national and global importance.

The Research and Innovation team look forward to working with our research, innovation and knowledge exchange communities across the six schools and the four hubs to build and develop a research-active and research-informed university.
