University of Sussex

The University of Sussex has a long history of carrying out research that transforms the way we live and work across the world.

We have worked with a range of businesses, organisations and governments to carry out collaborative research that has led to changes in management practice, improved policies and new technologies.

In the field of maths and physical sciences, we have developed new ways to make smartphone touch screens that are cheaper and more environmentally friendly and new ways to morph liquid metal into physical shapes.

University of Sussex software tools are helping police understand and combat Islamophobia and other hate crimes, and we are working with government policy makers from across the globe to foster innovation.

These are just a few examples of how our research leads to real change in the world. Imagine what we could achieve working together.
