World-leading research at Aston

Our mission is to deliver research that changes lives for the better. As a public research university, we foster collaboration between students, academics and industry leaders, bringing together people from all backgrounds and disciplines in the pursuit of knowledge, academic excellence, and a better world. For over 70 years, we’ve pushed boundaries at the heart of the UK’s second city. We’ve embraced diversity, led change, and championed learning. We empower our researchers with access to cutting-edge facilities and investment opportunities. And we aim to magnify the impact of our research beyond academia, to the benefit of all.
