About

Research at Bangor University has a strong track record of delivering impact. Impact can be seen as economic, societal and cultural benefits. Impact not only adds value to the research portfolio, but also enriches the intellectual and personal development of our staff and students. The effects of impact are wide-ranging: staff at Bangor have had the opportunity to experience first-hand how plant breeding affects the lives of impoverished farmers in Northern India and East Africa; to work closely with a specialist university in China to develop state-of-the art broadband technology; and to develop culturally sensitive methodologies for dealing with violence in mental health in India.

These engagements not only support the research of our staff, but also deepen their understanding of economic and societal issues overseas, and how their research can lead to benefits; whether they be environmental (understanding the importance of biodiversity), policy-based (impact upon Government), and economic (product performance and value).

International research collaborations also provide unique opportunities for our students: for those coming to study in the UK: to experience study and life in a new country, and for home students travelling overseas: exposure to a different culture, life skills and improving their proficiency in a second language. This indirect impact is contributing to graduates entering the workplace who are fluent in the importance of internationalization, trained to become global citizens and are aware of how far-reaching the outcomes of research can be. At Bangor, postgraduate students make a huge contribution to University life; whether they are part of our Peer Guide scheme, gaining valuable experience through the Bangor Employability Award, or contributing to academic success as the author of a paper or inventor of new Intellectual Property. Internationalization is something that we actively encourage in Bangor, and pride ourselves on our achievements. Our research networks extend across the globe, and we continue to build on our portfolio of relationships, exploring opportunities and engaging with new partners.
