Research Impact

At Aston we conduct high-quality, exploitable research that has outstanding, tangible impact. 

Our research addresses real-world problems and provides practical solutions used by a range of organisations, policymakers and stakeholders. We reach beyond academia and have notable influence on public policy, services, society, culture, health and the environment. 

The impact case studies below highlight the groundbreaking effort undertaken by our researchers across our three colleges. 

We deliver such impact by ensuring only the highest standards of research integrity through integration of the concordat's core elements: honesty, rigour, transparency and open communication, care and respect.
