From its earliest days Loughborough has produced research that matters, driven not only by the highest levels of intellectual curiosity and achievement, but also by the need for solutions to immediate problems in social, economic, and industrial practice.
The range and volume of our research partnerships and links with government, business and industry are exceptional among universities.
In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, Loughborough was confirmed as one of the country’s leading research universities. Every department was assessed as undertaking research that is internationally recognized, with 18% of the University’s research considered to be ‘world leading’.
University research has been central to recognition of our "outstanding educational achievement in areas of service and benefit to the nation", which has resulted in the award of six Queen's Anniversary Prizes, unsurpassed in the UK.
