As a key feature of our Research Transformation Programme, we have begun to organise our research in relation to 5 thematic areas. We would all agree that DMU research is fundamentally value-led, and the themes have been chosen based on research undertaken at DMU. Our aim is to break down barriers and provide opportunities for researchers across disciplines and across Faculties to work together on ground-breaking interdisciplinary research projects that will contribute significantly to addressing global concerns and anchor our research in an international context, promoting the UN SDGs.

The event will be introduced by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Katie Normington, and chaired by the Pro Vice-Chancellor, Research, Professor Heather McLaughlin.

Each of the Theme Directors will provide 5-minute introductions to the research potential of their area and their plans for its development, followed by a Q&A.

2. Peace, Equality and Social Justice (Professor Kenneth Morrison)

3. Lifelong Wellbeing (Professor Raghu Raghavan)
