At Bath Spa University our research strategy is centred around the following aims:

  • Support internationally significant and world-leading research
  • Deepen international research links and externally-funded international projects
  • Continue to grow and develop strategic funding in enterprise and innovation
  • Remain a university of choice for early stage researchers
  • Conduct research in an ethical manner paying attention to environmental issues and issues of diversity.

We will do this by building a rich, impactful and responsible research environment which develops our researchers, puts in place strong UK and global research partnerships and by diversifying and increasing our research and enterprise income streams.
