BU is committed to supporting our academics to fulfil their potential and deliver world-leading research and is looking to secure philanthropic support to achieve this.

Our research shapes and changes the world around us, providing solutions to real-world problems and informing the education we deliver. We are looking for philanthropic partners from industry and beyond to help us support our academics in their development.

We're seeking philanthropic funding to support academics into full Professorial roles, particularly through engagement with industry partners.

Our academics come from various disciplines and contribute important and exciting research to our collective learning, providing important outputs in a wide range of subjects, from Engineering to Environmental Sciences.

Our recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) results were a testament to the quality of BU academics, with over 95% of BU research being judged as delivering considerable impact or higher and 94% of our research rated as internationally recognised or higher. We are looking for industry partners to accelerate the development of our academics and their research through additional funding.

If you would like to learn more about this initiative or explore funding opportunities, please get in touch with Claire House-Norman, Director of Fundraising & Alumni Relations: [email protected] for further information.
