Social impact

What we do to support social and economic change

We live in interesting but also challenging times. Growing world population is putting pressure on water, food, energy, healthcare, shelter and sanitation.

Issues of poverty, world security and sustainability remain intractable. Therefore one of the key objectives of research must be to deliver knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to address these global challenges.

We show cases here how our work in the School is contributing to solving these challenges and impacting lives around the world.
