Impact made in Brunel

PIONIEERING USEFUL AND USABLE RESEARCH FROM THE BEGINNING

Building on the heritage of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and the inspiration of Heinz Wolff, this unique tradition positions Brunel at the forefront of how impact is achieved and assessed today. Our work spans a wide agenda of expertise, producing advances that deliver economic, health, societal and cultural benefit at local, national and global levels. We address the challenges that matter. Our researchers have expertise in many fields including:  engineering, design and technology; environmental, life and sports sciences; clinical and social sciences; business and the law; and arts and humanities.      
Brunel himself was famous for building bridges, we too strive to bridge the gap between academic researchers and research users. Through our extensive networks of collaborators we ensure our research is relevant and accessible and has real value for industry, business, public services and people in their everyday lives. In the 21st century Brunel continues to build its legacy – outstanding research that brings real-world benefit.
