Research Impact

At Aston we conduct high quality, exploitable research that has outstanding, tangible impact on the real world around us. 

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 and culture, health and the environment. 

Our impact case studies highlight the ground-breaking effort undertaken by our researchers across all of our three colleges. 

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