Support our research
We need big ideas to solve big problems. We need the researchers who are dedicating their lives to dogged and painstaking pursuit of new knowledge and solutions
Support research. Support solutions
At the University of Portsmouth, research is not all white coats and laboratories. Sure there's loads of that – but our researchers work collaboratively, informed by real-world perspective on the challenges that touch our lives daily. We have a strong sense of place and a commitment to improving our city as well as our world.
With your help, we will dig deeper, work harder and faster, go further. our five overarching research themes are:
From tackling climate change and plastic pollution, to building green infrastructure and protecting the planet's ecological systems and biodiversity, our research is helping to secure the earth's future, at a time of real environmental danger.
Safe, democratic and sustainable societies rely on the people in them being active, informed and engaged – and our work in this theme deals with issues of equality, citizenship and engagement around the world.
Our research under this theme is helping make the world a better place – we're making significant breakthroughs, developing new technologies, and finding sustainable, cost-effective ways to transform our knowledge into action.
