Glasgow Research Beacons - information for staff

In May this year, the University launched its Research Beacons — these are six broad-based, cross-disciplinary areas of research excellence that have attracted major external investment.

Colleagues in Research & Innovation Services, External Relations and the Colleges have worked together to take forward the initiative and deliver engaging content which highlights research excellence and impact in these areas. The new research content is a step forward in how we articulate what we do well at Glasgow, helping us raise the profile of our research with our key audiences, including prospective staff and students, research partners, policymakers and funders, and the media.

The team will continue to develop new content around these cross-disciplinary areas to highlight the breadth of excellence across the four Colleges. We will create case studies, features and images, which will be available for everyone across the University to use in their communications.
