N8 Research: Overview

Research Themes

The N8 Research Partnership’s main areas of focus have been chosen based on existing strengths in the N8 universities and the region, as well as for the potential for growth and economic impact.

The N8 Research Partnership supports Research Themes of Net Zero North, Child of the North, Computationally Intensive Research (CIR), AgriFood, and Policing Research Partnership.

Each Research Theme is sponsored by a member of the N8 Strategic Executive Group and has one or more Academic Leads.

The aims of our research programmes are to:

  • Deliver collaborative R&D which combines complementary capabilities across the N8 universities.
  • Ensure the commercialisation and application of the research outputs – with particular relevance to private and public sector research users in the North of England.
