We are the University of Portsmouth: progressive, vibrant and a testament to our city’s heritage. We are a new kind of university, a breath of fresh air in the academic world. We are intent on discovery and connecting with our local and global community.
We are a globally responsible organisation, dedicated to identifying and solving problems, enriching people’s lives and bringing about lasting change. Our diverse innovation and research capabilities coincide with a strong track record in bringing together interdisciplinary teams to address particular challenges, which we’ve grouped into five themes:
– Democratic citizenship
– Future and emerging technologies
– Health and wellbeing
– Security and risk
– Sustainability and the environment.
The impact of our research and innovation is wide, positive and available to see in the world around us today. We stand out, not just in the UK but in the world, with excellence in areas from cosmology and forensics to cybersecurity, epigenetics and brain tumour research.
We have a long-standing reputation as an organisation that supports and drives economic and business development. We partner with business, industry and government to help improve, navigate and set the course for a better future. Our activities that support the local and national economy include research and consultancy services for businesses, the delivery of professional training, student placements and industrial studentships, and the provision of facilities and support for young businesses.
