As the University celebrates its strong performance in the Research Excellence Framework (REF), a new publication highlights our research impact.
This collection of case studies – published to mark the University’s 50th anniversary – shows how Kent research has clarified ethics in healthcare and is helping to improve adult social care. It also features an award-winning centre which improves the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Kent Research: Making a difference outlines several examples of progress in pharmaceuticals and also presents examples of how Kent research has had an impact on UK Government, including the creation of a new model for the social care system to identify limitations in the funding system. Kent research has also provided a better understanding of how wealthy donors make decisions, and how research into biometrics is helping to make the world a safer place.
In addition, Kent researchers are transforming heritage management, and research from the University’s schools of Architecture, Anthropology and Conservation, Engineering and Digital Arts, Business and Law all has a clear focus on global sustainability.
