REF Update


 

Materials Research at the University of Ulster has jumped from 17th to 11th in the UK national league table for research excellence and in its research submission the Assessment Panel found strong evidence of world class research, supported by internationally leading research. In fact 95% of the staff are judged to be of international standing.

 

The Assessment Panel for this highly competitive and economically important discipline were looking at scientific discovery and engineering innovation at some of the strongest academic institutions in the UK including Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial, Birmingham, Liverpool, Sheffield and Imperial. The outcome for Ulster is a reward for the strategic focus in nanotechnology and advanced materials research and provides a strong foundation for future growth of this young and dynamic Institute.

Since the RAE 2008 submission the Institute has announced a further £10M of funding including a £1.7m Research Council (EPSRC) grant in the area of Health Technology (MATCH); two multi-million pound cross-border collaborative projects funded by DEL, in Biosensors and Tissue Engineering and a major industrial START (£1M) programme with AVX Ltd in the field of Nanoparticle research. Further successes have reported under the US-Ireland R&D (NSF-SFI-DEL).
