Our activities lead to important developments in key sectors, and our researchers are keen to build relationships with businesses and the community.

Sport and wellbeing


Building on the University’s position as a leading provider of football-related research, our clusters have forged exciting partnerships with a variety of agencies such as the League Managers Association, the Football Association and individual professional football clubs.
