Research, Engagement & Innovation Services

Swansea University has worked with thousands of private, public and voluntary sector organisations of all shapes and sizes to understand challenges and develop innovative solutions.

We can provide your organisation with access to talented graduates & students, world leading research & development support, first in class facilities & equipment, and professional skills development.

As one of the top Universities in the UK for research excellence, we use our research collaborations and global reach to drive economic growth, foster prosperity, enrich the local community and Welsh culture and, contribute to the health and wellbeing of our citizens.

Swansea University was founded by industry, for industry, on the simple principle that ‘Technical Skill is Bereft without Culture’.

Taken from one of the earliest collections of medieval Welsh literature, this is as relevant today as it was a thousand years ago.

We are proud of our significant global impact, enabled via long term strategic partnerships.
